All things considered I held that 6:10 pace good. Don't run fast while hungover, actually don't get hungover. Whew that was a bad idea. Spicy drink was a actually spikey.

Leg 4

So going into this I was under the impression I topped out at a about 4.5 then it was all cruisin from there. Under that impression I went out strong but reserved. First mile 6:36, 7:25, 7:54, the peaked at 9800ft. Downhill miles were 6:21 amd 6:16 and those downhill miles hurt something fierce. Then something truly cruel happens, it levels out from the downhill then rounds a corner and I am greeted with 417 more feet to climb. During those two downhill miles my legs had gone jelly and to go back up a hill for mile 7 absolutely killed me, 7:48 pace. Legs were feeling real bad but luckily for me because of the high elevation the temp wasn't bad and I got some cloud cover #blessup 7:08pace 1572ft of gain from this leg

Leg 15

Here's where things get interesting. Good ole Salt Boy practicaly killed himself on his leg. Mike jumps in and takes over running like a bro, but I was not going to let Mike run 9 in that infernal heat. I switch him partway into his leg so he only had 7. I knew my leg gained about 700ft so I had mentally prepared myself for that but I couldn't remeber where that was in the leg so I was kinda dreading the gain that I knew was coming. I told myself to hover around 7 flat until I encountered said gain but man was that the hardest 7-flat pace I've ever done. Little did I know it was actually a gradual uphill and I was really gaining about 115ft every mile. That would have been nice to know because there were times where I thought to myself "I'm such a chump I can barely maintain an easy 7-flat pace" ended up averaging also 7:08 pace with 834ft of gain

I don't remember what leg this was lul

3:30am I knew I was going to be adding a little extra on because Gill wrecked his calf and our whole van was taking some miles off his leg for him. My stomach was not agreeing with me at all before my leg and I was getting worried I would litterally explode on my run. When we pulled over to switch Austin out for Kobe I went over to the bushes and dry-heaved a little to no avail, then it was time for me to takeover for as long as I could. I switched the vest out with Kobe and began to slowly pick it up because my stomach was worrying me. Yet, as I picked up my pace I felt better and better so I just kept picking it up lol. The van took a while to follow me along and I got a wee bit paranoid during that cause I was in the middle of wilderness and visibility from the headlamp was minimal due to all the ash in the air. They finally pulled up behind me and I became conscious of the fact that I was and had been running up hill but I couldn't tell how steep it was I just wanted to go. So I kept going up and up, got some real nice downhill for about .3 and ended up holding back but still going 5:20 pace and it just felt blissful. I felt so strong during this leg, I was just going and having fun. Got to the exchange and the van wasn't there ready to drop Austin off so I was fully happy to just keep running but the volunteer called me back and told us the next legs were cancelled due to the excessive smoke in the air. We drove this stretch of road the next day during daylight and I was shocked to learn just how much hill there was, in the dark I wasn't aware just how much gain there was. 7:08 once again #consistency 728ft of gain in just those 4 miles lol

All things considered my legs felt better than they had any right to feel after what they went through (2,834ft in total). But they felt good so I did 4 on the treadmill cause St. Geezy is too hot

So I'm sure some of you noticed, I am heavily considering running at SUU this fall. Jamie jumped the gun a little but she is probably correct,
