Running race (Dead Horse 30K) 2:40:54 [5] 17.3 mi (9:18 / mi)
ahr:171 max:189 shoes: Sportiva Bushido

Felt great before the race and the week leading up to but it ended being the most laborious race of the year.
Finished 31/223 overall and 8/125 female

-My legs felt shot from the get go. Felt like a bonk the entire race to the point where I almost had to walk flattish part of the course.I felt so heavy almost stuck to to the ground at each step.

-I also never found the right flow or breathing . I think I was stressed in my attempt not to fall too behind which hindered my breathing and the fact that I was not feeling great.

-The pace was fast from the get go. I couldn't keep up with the leading pack .I just tried to keep up with the one runner in front of me while trying to be at a sustainable pace and not exhaust myself.
It paid off as I passed about 10 runners in the last 2 miles and sprinted the last 4 miles. These were mostly downhill.
Maybe if I had had a more relax attitude, It would have helped me pass a few more runners. I did think I slowed down due to being defeated at some point.
