Came here to say this, 73 from KB1OTE! Come join us at !amateur_radio

ranok OP ,

Thank you! I had a timer to eat something every 45 min, no sleep which was tough towards the end. It’s very different from a marathon, you’re going slower and it’s a lot more about keeping consistent with eating and caring for small things early. This was late in the season so cold and wet!

ranok OP ,

The winner finished in 19 ish hrs, I was at 30.5. The first 40 mi were easy to keep a pace for around 24hr, but then as the legs got tighter, the weather cooler and wetter I couldn’t keep the pace up and had to walk the up hills.

ranok OP ,

I was eating wheat thins and Oreos on the trail, broth and ramen noodles in aid stations. I was not a fast finisher, came in 31st in 30.5hr.

The biggest small thing is skin care. On a short race you can manage a little chaffing or a hot spot, for longer races taking the 3min to Vaseline or clean whatever is rubbing before it turns bloody is worth it

I actually didn’t sleep too well because my legs aches and I had an early flight home, maybe 7hr, don’t remember any dreams.

Pretty niche, but a citrus squeezer. I cook a lot of Asian food and it’s much better to put half a lime in the squeezer at a time than try and hand squeeze the juice out.
