Euphoria and suffering. It's clever how they blend together on the trail. I couldn't believe how strong I felt in the first six miles. It gradually got harder and hotter. Every time I've ran Sulphur Mountain Road I say the entire way up, "Oh that downhill is going to be such a party! It's going to feel soooo good." And every time, and today was no exception, the downhill is humbling AF. I had a total of two vanilla Gu Energy Gels, and ran with one 500ml flask of H20 and one 500ml flask of Nuun Endurance + Caffeine. It was a great day for a run, and the cows were out! Extra win!
