In hindsight I was a little under prepared for the cold, rainy & windy conditions but sometimes there-in lies the challenge and adventure.  17 mile trail run to/from the summit of Black Mountain via my new "super-loop" (a.k.a. no back tracking).  2.5 hours, 3000' of ascent/descent, 8:35 pace, average heart rate 130 bpm, 168 +Strava Suffer Score, 5 oz of water and 1 gel.  My fueling was actually fine but a wind-proof jacket, warmer hat & gloves would have made traversing the open ridge-line more comfortable against the stiff wind, pouring rain & 40 degree temps. #trailrunning  http://www.strava.com/activities/225622245

Did you know that the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run was preceded by the Tevis Cup “100 Miles – One Day” Horse Ride? Our trekker team saw horses on the trail in 3 locations. Here are some just after Cal-2 aid station. Find the others on Google Maps street-view! http://trailrunner.com/explore/western-states-trekker/
