So, the pain mostly came from the rocks and stuff that I had to run over. When I came home I found some wear on the tips of my toes, probably from digging in to get up hills.
By the time I was at the half way point I was a bit thirsty, but encouraged myself to keep going. By the time I was 3/4 the way done, I was in zombie mode. I was thirsty, tired, and hungry, but I still managed to take this picture at one of my favorite creek crossings on the trail.
On the way back the muddy spots were EXCELLENT! It was a great reward.
I got back to my car, drank some water, and started driving. I pulled up to the end of the parking lot and realized I needed to calm down and drink some water. I backed up, turned up the AC, then relaxed.
It was an awesome run!
