As I sit in the departure lounge of the Keflavik Airport I wanted to give a quick update, with a larger one (with pics) to follow.
The race went well. I finished in 9th, in 5 hours 29 minutes and 31 seconds. The winner was 4:49. I was happy with the result and the race as a whole although my desire to run 50 miles or longer has been tempered. I think I will stick with 50k races for now (or shorter).
The weather was great, the view both amazing and desolate, and I am able to walk today. Actually, my body held up relatively well after the race and I can walk relatively normally.
