Lows: The infamous mile 12 hill (“Stairway to heaven.”)

Highs: Perfect weather (and nailing the debate about what to wear when it’s cold at the start but warm by the finish. The answer: Short sleeves and gloves.); Getting in a zone and knocking out the first six miles before ever really checking for a mile marker; Mercifully avoiding photographers while in said “zone,” (It did strike me afterward that photos from that part of the race would have me looking like a Walking Dead extra. I can either focus on pacing up a hill or smile. Not both.); minimal overall soreness and no arch pain (I was worried about an injury after the Rogue 30K); and HITTING THE BLOBLESSNESS GOAL FOR FEBRUARY!
