It was a tough course.... The 9-hour cutoff was a little demanding and there were a few that did not make it. An 8-hour cutoff would have been too severe. There were rocks, roots and hills galore. I'd have to say... the course was pretty technical. There were many, many places that there was no way you could negotiate them except by walking. Many hills were steep, and some were prolonged.
I may have underestimated this run.
Oh, and I'm just now getting well from a nasty sinus infection that's had me on the sidelines since the Mardi Gras Marathon.
What the heck did I get myself into???
