Ouch. 10 days later and things are still not right. It has been almost 20 years since I factored in the outcome of a race. Much different than running to finish. 8th out of 2500 is a big step at a distance far too short for me. Let's see if I can get a fitness bump for my efforts and put it to use later this year.
Post run we took it easy for a week of rock climbing in Red Rocks. I ran 6 miles last week total. Taking it easy for the 50K this weekend. It will be nice to race close to home. Check out my cushy shoes.
