We entered a run that wasn’t a marathon! We slipped this into the schedule because it was ideal training for the ultra-insane Pikes Peak Marathon that we’ve entered in August. It’s “only” 12.8 miles so we should be able to knock that out no trouble, right? Wrong! Peaking at 10,200 feet altitude and with a total of 7,260 feet of elevation change this course will eat you up. We struggled to walk for several days after the race. Although it’s not a marathon we thought we’d write up our experience here.
