25K down, 25K to go
Brad took this as I marched up the final hill in the Speedgoat. Important to notice here: I am carrying ONE water bottle, and a small one at that. I have no food on my person, and I'm in no way shaded from the elements. Think I underestimated this race? Not only was I the only racer without provisions, I also seemed to be the only one who, like, didn't prepare.
Oh well, that's how I do things, I suppose. Sort of jump in blind. Now that I know that I CAN run a 50K, I will actually TRAIN for the next one (oh yes, there'll be a next one). And carry more water. And food.
Jesus. I can't believe I didn't pass out mid-course.
