Ascent Trip Report

Part of XTERRA Mission Gorge 15km Trail Race where I finished 7th out of 358. Race start was at 8am California time (8:10 Pacific time). It was a hot! The sun was baking down already and after 15 minutes (I also went out too hard) I had to take my shirt off. I also stopped at all 5 water stations to drink... was dehydrated. I didn't want to do this race when I woke up first thing in the morning after having biked about 20 miles and out in the sun all day the day before. But I was glad I did, taking home a "gold" medal for first place in my age category. I surprised myself for my first race in SoCal. Great trail - super steep in some parts, especially the stairs leading up to the summit of S. Fortuna. If I did this race again I think I could place top 3.
