The run was awsome the scenery great. it was mostly down hill with 3 uphills the 3rd one was long and a little brutal and someone had the brite idea to put it at mile 22,the uphill part was ok the down killed my quads.other than that the race was great and I had a lot of fun.
What would you do differently?:

I need to train more on hills the down just killed me or maybe it was the fact i've never run that far before. I still need more hill work
