I loved every moment of this race. The scenery was ceaselessly beautiful and the weather turned out perfect – nicely chilly at the start, blue skies throughout, and perfectly warm at the end. I did not find the course too hard, although my legs did hurt the next day from all the downhill running. The water and aid stations were very well stocked and numerous – I never felt like it was too much of a stretch to get to one. I did have to wait for a shuttle but I was not mad about it. I had been training for this race for 9 months and travelled across the country to get there, and I was just excited to be living that experience at last. We spent the rest of the weekend hiking in Yosemite which is about the most awesome and glorious place on earth. If I did not live so far, I would happily do this one again. This was my favorite race I have ever done and I hope to do more of these national park races. I loved every minute!
