Quadzilla Trail Race at Trexler Preserve. Nominally 15k but it was a bit long this year (as we had been warned). The course has been different each of the three times I’ve done it, although they manage to retain some key features: stream crossings and monster hills. This year’s course had more of both than in previous years including two diagonal crossings of the Jordan Creek and two hills I had never climbed before (and several more which I had been up). And to make it extra badass, when the race started at 7:30am in was already in the upper 70s with a mid-70s dew point with the sun out to drive it into the mid-80s while we raced.

Coming into the first aid station at about 3.5 miles I felt pretty crappy so I spent a couple of minutes there consuming water, Gatorade and watermelon then continued, walking anything uphill. Much of the next stretch was in the woods and there was some breeze, so I started feeling better. Lots of walking for the rest of the race but there were some downhills where I could move at a decent clip. One of my calfs started to cramp on the final descent to the finish but I was able to continue running. Finished 3rd in M60+, about 17 minutes back of two younger guys. 130th overall out of 400 registered - I’ll need to see the results to see how many actually ran and finished. Edit: 354 finishers, 10 M60+, 3 guys older than me (67, 67, and 70).

Little Lehigh Parkway, exploring more of the trails in the woods. Upper 80s and stupid humid but hadn’t actually run since Sunday and wanted to be sure I remembered how. OK in the woods and shade except for the copious sweating part.

The rest of the bags at PS Berks plus a revisit to most of the first loop to wake the controls up. Still oppressive. Rain started just as l got back which dropped the temp and made things more bearable. Then about an hour later it poured, with some lightning a bit too close for comfort. Everyone survived but some people bailed on doing a second course. And lots of help with control pickup and cleanup - thanks to all who came.

Field Checking 46:56 intensity: (16:27 @0) + (26:55 @1) + (2:45 @2) + (17 @3) + (7 @4) + (25 @5) 2.91 km (16:07 / km) +25m 15:27 / km
