    Wow great job! That’s a tough 50 miler for your first! I have attempted the 50 miler twice but altitude sickness got me both times so I get to the top of diamond peak and need to stop. I had a great day 4 years ago finishing the 55K. But unfortunately I was sick at the beginning of this year 55K and just stayed I’ll the whole time. Took me 14 hours of walking. Sorry didn’t mean this to me about me but wanted to emphasize how great you did in this very difficult race. But weren’t those views incredible? Congrats to you‼️‼️👊👍💪. Janice

      Thanks Janice!! That was my fear after my experience with altitude sickness at the NorthFace 50k in Park City, UT which is why I made the decision to go a little slower. It paid off & I was able to finish with no altitude issues at all. Great job to you as well! Way to get it done! 👊🏼

    I’d like to run this race just to see the scenery, but the mountains intimidate me. I have some Glukos products that I plan to use on a future long run. Sounds like they worked well for you. Congrats on running strong and completing your first 50 mile mountain race!

      Thank you!! And don’t let them scare you! These trails were super well maintained. They are well used.

      And I really like the Glukos gels – they are water based which I really like vs how thick other gels are. Kind of like a concentrated drink 😊

        I’m looking forward to trying Glukos out. Thanks for the encouragement about the race. If I ever get the chance to travel to Tahoe, maybe I’ll give this race a try!

    […] planned for this year.  2016 was a great year and I tested myself by trying new distances like TRT 50 and Cuyamaca 100k.  We traveled all over the place including a few new places, like Chamonix, […]
