Sorry for the delay...we took off on vacation race night and went completely offline for a whole week...thoroughly needed & enjoyed! And a warning...this is a long one!
|Don't let the cows out!|
|Mr Bigglesworth & me chillin' on the front step at 0415 ;)|
|We are off!|
|Through the first cow pasture|
|Couple of dorks on the trail blocking the path|
|Thanks Steph, for taking our picture!|
|We hoped they wold not have to be deployed for us!|
|At "The Morgue" ~ mile 20ish|
|Officially ultra @ 26.3 miles ;-D|
|Me not letting cows out!|
I was done! I was happy, relieved and exhausted all at the same time! Trail Buddy and I managed to get over to our stuff and collapsed onto the ground. We didn't even bother to get a picture standing...we asked the woman sitting beside us in a camp chair to take a picture of us.
We are Ultra Runners!!!!!!
I took my shoes and socks off. My favourite rainbow socks had holes and my feet were full of blisters. I am glad they did not bother me while I was running, but I sure as heck felt them as soon as my feet were bare....holy moly, am I glad we had aquaphor to lather them in! Trail Buddy had packed some sweat towels in ice water in our cooler and we laid back for a few minutes with our feet wrapped in the cold towels. It felt like bliss.
I cannot wait to do this again!
|33 miles, almost 10 hours, happy Ultra Chicks!|
