Long Run 11:51:00  56.0 mi (12:42 / mi)
GPS lost battery so between 56-57 miles with 5200 feet of gain. Today went well. Started at 6 and ended at 6. Had 2 friends come out to and do miles 29-46 with me. I was on top of my nutrition and the only real low point was miles 42-46, and part of it was that I was trying to keep up with the guy that came to run with me. I don't know him that well and I don't think he got that I needed to walk. Once he left, I bounced back after downing some calories and caffeine. I was still able to run the flats and downhills the last 10 miles so I was really happy about that. It was hotter than I expected and so I got slightly behind on hydration. I also got rained on at the very end of the day. Saw the same herd of deer, I think at sunrise and sunset. Pretty cool day. I feel ready for the race. Gear was spot on. No blisters, no chafing.
