The gear all laid out the night before; I carried
some of the stuff with me and left the rest as a
drop bag at the start/finish area for the loops.
I was particularly happy because I was able to score a personal best for the 50K distance. Back in October, I ran the Can Lake 50K in 6 hours and 21 minutes, so I was able to shave some time off this time around!
