First Ultra Done

Completed my first “ultra” today … if only the distance of 25km. Very steep, dusty and rocky most of the way from lake level to Divide Lake on top of a 1430m high mountain! What a climb, and what a downhill. Surprisingly my quads and feet held up, and I was happy to get into greener and shadier trails for the last 6km of the race. I finished second in my category so that’s a good result, given it’s my first ultra race and the longest I have ever run on trails! The next one is in three weeks but tonight it’s all about recovery and hydration!
