Joe was going to meet us at the 12 mile point (just past the aid station 19 during the race) to provide aid. I saw him right before that driving away - he was going to check on some runners who got to the aid station before he did. He asked if I needed water, but I was good.
As soon as I took a left after seeing Joe, the wind became a headwind!! I would guess the gusts were around 30 miles an hour. At least it kept things cool out there, but it made it hard to run. Around mile 18 or so (mile 25 of the race), the road heads uphill again. Joe passed by again, and this time I took water. My Camelbak had some water in it, but I was starting to conserve. The wind was drying me out a bit.
Sabino Basin trail run (2/13/11):

I returned on Phoneline trail and Dallas met me in the last few miles.
|He was easy to spot.|

We got pretty sunburned (it was 82 degrees for the high today). Just two weeks ago, we had a hard freeze! Crazy global warming weather!

It was only my 2nd time up there - the first time was last Valentine's Day!
We got to the top as soon as it got dark.
