Leg 2 (4.6miles)

Ran from mtn meadow to central on hwy 18. First mile uphill and the rest was a nice gradual down. The pace was easy to hold at 6:20.

Ran just above an easy pace. Strong headwind. I think I figured out how to tape my toe so it doesnt hurt when I run

This run finishes my 24 hr set. I wanted about 26 mile accumulative... 7.2 + 8.1 + 10.3 = 25.6 miles. I'm tired but I feel good! I should throw in the 4 mile hike with my kids but that was recovery.
