For my first 100k I choose one of the hardest 100k's in the country. Of course right? Well, it was brutally awesome. I had to wake up at 2 am and the race began at 5, my family woke up with me and stayed the entire long day. I only saw them once during the race. One step after another I covered the entire 14,000' of elevation gain and 62 miles, which is a 100k, in 15 hours and 18 minutes. A finish, which was all that mattered to me that day. I loved, or at least tried to love, every moment of it. It truly was an entire life in a trail.
