Cuyamaca 3 Peaks 50K -- 20 Second Race Report

This was my last hard effort before the Canadian Death Race. My goal was to take the first 20 miles pretty easy and run most of the last 10.

I felt really good during most of the race. It was pretty hot and I went through 8-9 liters of Gatorade, about 20 salt tablets, and 8 GUs.

The aid station at the top of Cuyamaca Peak, the toughest climb of the day, was awesome. My friend Carl was up there handing out Otter Pops, and at the time it was a little piece of frozen heaven.

I ran the whole thing with Jess, who is in great shape for the Death Race.

It was great seeing so many people on the course and at the end of the race. Chris killed it, setting a new course record, and finishing 50 minutes ahead of 2nd place. I finished top 10 in 6:12. I'm happy with that.

I listened to Dr. Dre's The Chronic on the drive home, really loud, because that's the only way it sounds good.

Thanks for reading.
