πŸ“· Park

At Lory State Park this morning before I ran the Quad Rock 50 mile race for the 5th time. Six trips up and down this mountain, with over 11,000ft of elevation gain and loss. It went about as well as could be expected, given my three separate niggling injuries. My crappy body was figuratively held together by kinesio tape.
