Diablo 50 Miler
I just got back from setting a PR in the Diablo 50 miler. I finished in about 13:32, beating my previous best of 14:49. The usual 50 miles with 13,340 feet of vertical gain, but today it decided to be 83 degrees, and I got really nauseous and tried to vomit, but I felt great for all but those vomity miles 37-42. One of my big goals for the year was to break 14:00, and I did it. Good thing too, because I realized that thanks to the CDT hike, I've literally spent over half of my waking hours in the past year training for this. Thanks to Marcus for altering his Saturday bike ride to run into me on the course once, and thanks to Zack for an excellent job of pacing for the last 12 miles.
