Thanks, everyone. It was just about right. Another new distance, another great learning experience. I'm beginning to really enjoy the 40-50 mile range, especially with lots of aid stations like they had (30-45 minutes between each one!), where I can go light and keep moving. Two loops (lollipops, in this case) is also nice, as you get to think about the 2nd half during the first, and prep for it.
On to the Naked Prussian 50mi in 4 weeks! Same location, sameish course
, just a bit longer. Negative splits. Negative splits. There, I said it. Twice. Better get tapering. ;)
