We road down in a van - very jolly group. All abilities enjoying each other's company and agreeing that they will never look at the mountain the same.
Tried an ice bath for 5 minutes - ouch!

not training

Event comments:

Had a pretty good time - met some people for once in Winnemucca that are "normal" I want to go walk aorund the walmart in my race number and look at all of the people who never work out.
I told Chuck (LBS guy) that that represented the entirety of my run training for St George - he said "Well, you know you can suffer, that is important"!

Age Group: 7/9
Overall: 46/58
Performance: Good
Course: Took the course which would be considered the easy route. Started going up the pediment, mild slope on 4wd road. got to the real mountain and had a steep rocky slope for a while - calves were burning the whole time. Then the slope went grassey for a while - did some backwards walking to ease the calves. Annie left me on the pediment and took off (to finish 3rd in her age group) and I fell in with some ladies out for the challenge. I developed a strategy of 10 steps, pause, 10 steps, pause.
Keeping cool Good Drinking Just right
