With Reed. This was a pretty tough one. Liked the low-mileage nature of it - off trail trekking and dirt riding. Nice cool weather - t shirt and bibs was perfect. It was a 13-hr race for us with early start and over time finish. It was a long course and you had to be fast or skip stuff early to make time. We didn't do that. Reed was a trooper, as always. The unlikely highlight? A scenic swamp bikewhack.

First run in these shoes. Overall good. They are quick, light shoes, a little stripped down and less cushy than I've become accustomed to, but protection seems adequate-ish. I've always been leery of the Salomon lacing system; it was fine today but would need to test for longer periods off trail to see if it's race-appropriate.
