The 9th running of the Arrowhead 135 is in the books...well for me, some are still out there! This was my 3rd time at this beast of a race.
138 names on the roster, 135 started, and less than 50 will finish. That tells you something about this race.
I ended up 4th. I'm very happy with that. The previous 2 years I was 5th. The competition was super strong and deep this year so I'm feeling pretty good. The top three, however, had about 1.5 hours on me! Those boys were strong!
I struggled mentally and physically (that's endurance racing in a nutshell), wanted to quit, and swore of the race for next year. But yep, time heals and I'm sure I'll be back.
Hoping to have a full race report with some photos up tomorrow.
Playing catch up with emails and whatnot.
