8:56 for today’s 50 miler. Almost 2 hours faster than my first one. I had a rough stretch and really wanted to quit at mile 35. And when I thought I couldn’t feel more miserable, it started to dump rain and lasted the rest of the race. Coke, PB&J, Oreos and Chips Ahoy brought me back to life and I had an awesome finish. So happy for how things turned around and put down a solid time.
