Things I Learned from My 3rd Wild Duluth 100k

17-Oct-16
Reading Time: 1 minutes

I’ll write more later as I get time to reflect. But here’s some quick thoughts from Saturday’s run.

  • Starting at 6 a.m. is nice. Darkness suits me.
  • The vistas from Ely’s Peak are amazing in October. Waves of yellow across miles.
  • Having Enger Tower lit at night is a great beacon to run towards. Very motivating late at night.
  • Soup is good. Potato. Chicken noodle. Chicken wild rice.
  • Hematuria.
  • The 600-foot descent from Enger Tower is brutal at 11 p.m.
  • Groves of pine trees create perfect silence on windy days.
  • 64F with 88% humidity is still too warm for me.
  • Ringing the Peace Bell twice is always gratifying.
