My legs were dead, details later.
I knew going into this race my legs would be tired , but I was hoping I would still be able to break 1:30. I warmed up with Ericka and Kassi 4 miles and made sure I was fueled well and practiced taking a gel in the race. I felt good the 1st half of the race and then when we started the downhill stuff at 7 my legs felt like they did the day after Nebo. The 3rd place girl cought up to me at this point and I was thinking crap I don't have it in me to hold her off. Well I did until 12.5 and then there is a short steep uphill that killed my legs completely off and she passed me like I was standing still, I let her get to far ahead and couldn't catch back up to her. I did close the gap but my legs were toast with melted butter on them. I did run a very small PR in the race so I shouldn't complain but i just wish I would have stuck it out and helf off the very fine lady that passed me. I would like redemtion on this course I do like a good honest half and this one is very honest, so I hope they do it again next year (I have heard rumors they aren't going to do it anymore due to low turn out). Cooled down with Kassi and Ericka 4 more miles and my legs felt like I had just ran Nebo again.
