This was a hot one! Pretty much knew it was going to be brutal when we got to the starting line. Temps in the early 80s before the race started. I tried to take the first few miles chill and was amazed at how many people were starting fast. My HR was up in the high 160’s before the first mile was even over, but I felt chill. I tried to back off but it was no luck. Luckily I popped a few salt tablets around mile 9. I really felt like I was gonna bonk from around mile 13 till finish. Got stung by a hornet in the neck - Around mile 20 people started falling off and it felt super motivating to pick them off. This was such a fun race - Bill and I boon-docked in his camper van overnight around where the shuttle picked us up.
