Woke up on my 40th birthday feeling like I'd been hit by a truck. Swollen, blistered feet, puffy eyes, bruised knees, thorns in my hands starting to become infected. 96 hours of racing on less than 3 hours sleep through some of the ACTs most unforgiving terrain. Not how one typically celebrates a significant birthday and I may need to look at my life choices. Despite me doubting I'd finish the race at times, our team JPRCA-Peak Adventure ended up second. This was the hardest event I've done to date. I went through countless emotional changes, my head wasn't in it for the first 2 days, but I got to that nirvana-state at the end. Time to put the feet up for a bit. Thanks for the birthday wishes everyone.
