Bryce Canyon 100 mile race done and dusted. This race is so much harder than it looks on paper. Combine that with the lowest of lows I’ve ever experienced during a race (I considered contacting emergency services for extraction at mile 42 because I didn’t know if I could make it to the next aid station), and that’s a recipe for a tough day+. I rode the wave and rose from the ashes just 10 miles later, working my way up to 6th place by the end.
