AF Canyon. Pinehollow->Bear Canyon short loop. Much improved run this evening. CR up to the first meadow. Felt strong on uphills, purposefully held  back on downhills. Won't say I'm back 100% but this was a great sign.

HARDROCK 100 (43 hours, 46 minutes)

I finished. Not exactly the time and day I was looking for but I am offically a Hardrocker. Finishing Hardrock meant the world to me. Things fell apart going over Oscar's Pass (13K) coming into Telluride (mile 27). The short of it is that I did a full reset--new goals, new outlook and slugged it out. Hardest thing I've ever done.

Fun day at Snowbird chasing and saying "hello" to friends at Speedgoat. Stayed up top for awhile helping friends at aid station. Love Speedgoat day.

Wasatch Trail Series: Snowbird. Took a nasty tumble hitting an exposed wire (loop) across the trail. One minute I'm running, the next I'm on my face. Legs still tired but coming around.
