Had planned for a progression run 75min Fri, but life got in the way and was going to have to complete the workout Saturday...happened to be in Los Alamos Friday night, and went over to the start of the 50mi race at 4:45...asked if they had a spot in the half, they said yes, napped for an hour, came back and ran one of the most challenging, but certainly one of the most breathtaking, "races" I've ever run.

Solid week.  My legs are sore now.
