Don't Fence Me In 30K: Heaven and Hell
Beautiful trail, sunny day, great cause. I know these trails well and was enjoying the heck out of myself. The total elevation gain is over 4,000 feet. At about Mile 16, my head popped off. ha-ha. I was starting to pick up my pace to make my goal time. Then, I realized that my "running math" was wrong - as usual. It is almost impossible for me to add, subtract and mutilple after I have been running for a few hours. The brain just doesn't compute. When I knew I wasn't going to make my goal, I got pissed. Then I was running and swearing until the end! I hate it when that happens!! I got over it when I learned that the true distance WAS printed on the map and I was the one who read it wrong.
