I had wanted to write this race report sooner, but I have to admit that I lost a bit of my mojo. Six days after the race I rolled my ankle pretty hard, and so I went from riding the high of my best raced ultra, to feeling a bit like a lame duck.
|Straight from Bag End - I did this AFTER the race on a training run|
DV50K was undoubtedly the strongest I have felt in an ultra, and my most satisfying racing win, particularly because I was so diligent in my buildup. I wrote a post last week summarizing my training and lead up to the race. You can find it here.
This report gets a
bit lot lengthy, but as I said, this
was a really big victory for me. I finally
got an ultra right. It was the first time, and so I want to give this milestone
in my running career the attention it deserves.
