97F -> 88F.  Whew, these things are getting harder...both the courses and the temperatures.  Pretty well-paced again, moved up 3 spots in the second half of the race.  This was the most technical so far - feet feel bruised up a little thanks to all the jagged rocks.  My shoes have a rock plate but not a very substantial one I guess!  ow

Nicely done! That's some crazy heat, hopefully it was a beautiful night. Have you tried Salomon's trail shoes? I tried one, the Wing XT maybe(?) that was really stiff and excellent for rocks. Gave me a blister on the side of my foot so I took them back, but I wish my Brooks Cascadias were a bit more stiff.

I am not sure I could have even finished let one raced in those temps. You are one tough runner brah. Vibrams for rocks.

From Yasir on Fri, Aug 12, 2016 at 07:05:36 from

How are the feet? just checking on you

You're obviously in the toughest age group! These runs seem hard to me and all I have to do is read the race reports!
