From the start through Telluride, I'd been running mostly with eventual women's winner Darcy Africa, but out of Telluride, Darcy picked up a pacer and they quickly dropped me on the climb up to Ophir pass. Not without offering to have me tag along however, which I appreciated. My goal wasn't to push it this race, but to finish in good shape for UTMB and Diagonele des Fous in the coming months.
