              Thank you, Laguiri , PetiteSheWolf , NancyTree , Fremen , Colin , Mamatigerj , Gandhalfit (on Kula's behalf too! I can assure you that she's loved a lot.)

              The race was absolutely fantastic! I could write pages about all the people I saw there, how beautiful the route was and how unique the whole atmosphere felt. I'm very happy with my performance too. My legs were strong but well-rested, and I chose my pace well: I didn't hold myself back but also didn't use up my energy too soon. Actually my pace was quite even throughout the race. I was worried about the elevation (310 m elevation gain in total with two sleep parts), because hill runs haven't been part of my training for a long time. But running uphill was probably my strength in this race, I kept passing people there and during the second uphill run when nearly everyone around me slowed down to a walk, I was still fine running on. I'm sure it's because of all the training I do apart from running.

              In the end I was able to cross the finish line strong and confident, and ended up with a net time of 1:58:34. That's under 2 hours, which was my secret dream, so I'm definitely satisfied.

                Nice going. I'm sure it's the extra training that helped you get up hill. Those are really helpful even if you don't train specifically for up hill when running. You made the right decision by resting enough prior to the race that's for sure. I'm glad you enjoyed it, that's major in future training and just, you know, feeling great.
