This was a good day to run with JungleJenn as she trains for Zion. We weren't out to set any records and ran and talked for 5.5 hours. Legs were definitely feeling the lack of training for most of the second half.
It was interesting to see the old barn where they dried tobacco (see the pic).
What would you do differently?:
Train more. I signed up at the last minute with my longest run this year being 11.5 miles.
Grabbed a few bananas and a slice of pizza.
What limited your ability to perform faster:
Limited training. Was resting a sore Achilles tendon most of December and January.
Was doing this race to run with Jenn and didn't stick around too long after finishing.

Got up early, coffee and some breakfast before the drive. Huddle in the warming tent.
Walked over to the starting line to find JungleJenn. This wasn't going to be an aggressive pace, so I opted to save my energy.
