Went and did another long run on part of the 50k course across from Jacob Hamblin. I had a big mileage day yesterday with a workout and wanted to run on tired legs today. The temps were quite warm but it was absolutely gorgeous today.

I was feeling really good and cruising along when at 5 miles my foot clipped a rock and I went down hard. I cut up my hands and both knees pretty bad. I seemed to skid for a little bit but once I stopped I checked myself over and didn't look great. I licked my wounds and kept going. I finished up the Rim Rock and Rim Runner look to get to 11 miles and grabbed my second bottle at the bottom of the hill. I chomped down a guy and started going back up to hit the Barrel Roll Loop. The temps were super hot and I just kept trying to cruise along. At about mile 17 I felt pretty flat but kept seeing mountain bikers so I would chase them down to keep me going. I was a bloody and dusty mess so I got some funny looks. I got down with the loop and actually felt pretty good the last 2.5 miles back up the hill to the house.

I finished close to 23 miles and just over 3 hours 10 minutes which included the crash and burn. I got home and Oliver asked, "Dad, did you throw up on your shirt!" Lots of dirt. Scared Katey a little bit but a fun adventure on the trails.
