  • 31.07 miles
  • 14m 50s  min/mile

This was hands down the worst race I have ever had. I was doing great for the first 15 miles -- in fourth or fifth place overall for women in the 50k. Tweaked my knee in the sand somewhere around mile 7. Thought it would be okay, but IT band gave out at 15. Could not run at all. Walked the last 16 miles. It got pretty hot.

Event comments:

My only problem with the race was having had to run through the soft, deep sand. Everything else about the race was great.
