6/9/17

First day of Ragnar Trail Snowmass, CO! Awesome team from Undeniable. I was the fourth runner of the group so my legs went Green, Red, then Yellow. Here are the recaps. We ended up finishing 9/100 teams!

Leg #1 – Green (12:15pm)

First, it was pretty damn hot when I took off for this one (somewhere in the low 80’s with no clouds). This was the green (easiest) route so the total was roughly 4 miles. It start off nice and flat, but then it quickly got hilly. I was able to run 95% of the route, but honestly, this was the hardest run of the day.

Time: 32:14
Distance: 4 miles
Pace: 7:56/mile

Leg #2 – Red (6:30pm)

This was supposed to be the hardest route, but I actually had a ton of fun. It was straight uphill for the first three miles then straight downhill for the last 3.75 miles. I managed to run the entire road bit and then walked the last steep climb on the trail before descending.

Time: 1:05:08
Distance: 6.7 miles
Pace: 9:41/mile

Lap #3 – Yellow (1:30am)

I ran the yellow loop last, and I was pretty zonked. I didn’t sleep at all before the run, but I think I would’ve been more out of it if I had.

Time: 35:37
Distance: 3.71 miles
Pace: 9:36/mile
