Waco 50K results: 6 hours, 53 minutes.
Race report to come, but here's some initial thoughts on my first real trail run and first attempt at running more than 26.2 miles (31.070699999 miles to be exact):
1. Waco is definetly part of the hill country.
2. Forget gels and energy bars. The best endurance food is flat Coca-Cola and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
4. Walking uphill is not only encouraged, it is often required. Especially when the course is designed by a mad genius.
5. The heat (like a 25 degree increase from the 50s to 80 degrees plus) can screw with your pace. But it's massive hills that really screw with you.
