Full disclosure: I started this post in Aug-2015 and never finished it.  Now in 2018 upon the resurrection of this blog I found this report & have decided to fill in what I remember & post it. -Tim

Race in 1 paragraph: Good Cold day, showed up & started slow as I was taking pictures and carelessly chatting with a couple of people.  Right up until the 1st turn where I saw Parker; from that point on my goal was to catch him.  That never happened however I closed the distance on him and walked away with a 50K PR.

What Went Right:
It was cold and I was able to run hard w/o any stomach issues

What Went Wrong:
I messed around for too long on the 1st leg taking pictures and not “Racing”.
Conclusion: Good Fast Race, Feels more like a marathon than the Ultras I am use to.
