Flatlanders Canyon Crash 50k. Not the most pain-free time of my life but I had fun and got a cool medal by winning 2nd overall female so that was neato. Also there were dogs I got to pet after the race! Ran with my old Salomons instead of the Hokas because during the warmup the Hokas started to make my feet hurt. I kinda wish I'd pushed through that discomfort because the cushioning in the Salomons is super broken down and my legs got absolutely obliterated by the downhills. Started to stiffen up around the halfway point and it just continued to get worse from there on out, probably in part because the temperature kept climbing. Will I do another one of these though? Absolutely, just gotta get better shoes and train a little more!
