I ran the Pocatello 50 miler. It was actually 53.5 miles. It's a really tough race with 3 large climbs. Starting out, I couldn't seem to get my hydration right. Finally after 35 miles, things were feeling better. At the finish line, the were serving loaded bake potatoes. They tasted great after running that distance. Super fun day.

Congrats on the finish Matt (er twinkies). That race is a tough one! I saw you at the start but I was in the zone...

Your race report is awful. It should take you at least a minute for every hour you were out there. No way yours took more than 5 mins.

Thanks Cody. You had an awesome race. Sorry about the report. I need to work on that.
