Everyone says this race is extremely tough - same thing they say about Cruel Jewel. With your goal of completing three 100-milers in a year, you could have been forgiven for choosing "easy" ones but you took on a couple of the hardest 100 milers on the circuit. Great job! :)
Job well done- again. Maybe all the portaging helped during your taper- Not.
Yeah I did have that thought at more than one point when I was running along thinking about how sore my quads were.
You need to do something easier...WT would be a walk in the park for you now! Perhaps next year. You still seemed to have a great race; congrats and see you at TrailFix.
