The race started at 6:00am, and Kelly Baker and I were treated to a nice sunrise. The day went well on this 1.5 mile trail loop at the Lake Erie Bluffs Metroparks with a starting temperature around 49 degrees. The day slowly warmed up to the low 70's with a strong breezy later in the day. This race was well done, with plenty of food, and a great staff. If you're looking for your first 50K or a 12-hour fitness test, I highly recommend this event.
