What would you do differently?:

My very limited base (averaged less than 10 miles per week in 2010) made this a challenging event. My goal was to finish, not hurt anything, and have a good time. I think I scored on two of the three accounts. Six days after the race, I am still struggling to walk due to foot pain.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around, drank some water, then slammed a gatorade I had brought. Tried to stretch, but had some pretty serious cramping issues.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Longest run was about 8 miles, averaged about 10 miles per week the last year.

Event comments:

This is a great trail race - I will be back next year.
