Race report

Conquered my first 50k and beat my 6 hour time goal (just barely!)

Amazing course, though very technical with many river crossings, rocks, and trees to climb over or walk across. The only picture I took was around the halfway point when I got tired of climbing the mountain. Thankful to have had several people around my pace pushing me for several of the miles.

My first run at Paradise Valley! This course was great - very technical, but not too hilly. Overall very glad with my performance. And it even finally rained a little bit!

Race report

Tiger Mountain is a BEAST. Potentially the hardest half marathon I've run, though Lord Hill is definitely up there too. Great weather today and amazing views of the surrounding area at the top. At one point, I was running through hundreds of similar trees that I could barely see the tops of - so amazing. Thankful to have a group of us pacing each other almost the whole time, even if we ended up spread out a little bit. After getting a bad blister three weeks ago on a run, I was a bit nervous for this. No blisters this time!

~2200 feet of total elevation gain, with probably 60-70% of the total gain in the first 4 miles means it's going to be TOUGH. First 5k was around 37 minutes.
