San Juan is rolling hills and the joke is it's uphill both ways when in actuality it's uphill on the way back. On the way back I realized I was low on water and even though I knew John had extra water, I had a minor panic attack which affected my breathing. Once we hit the top we took a short rest and I was fine on the downhill.
Two weeks ago my achilles started aching and for this run I used KT Tape on it. The only problem is I sweated so much that it started coming off from the top and the bottom flapping as I ran.
Here's a picture of what my Garmin shows as my route. I can guarantee you that I ran on the road but you can see how Garmin captures the data. If you realize that Garmin isn't 100% accurate, you can understand how the distance at measured races doesn't match what the Garmin shows.
Next week is my final long run before Crater Lake and I'll run South Mountain backwards to mimic the race. I'll make sure we get up earlier to get in more miles before the sun comes over the hills.
