Blue Canyon Trail Race 50K Santa Barbara, CA

start of the final 3.5 miles of downhill to the finish FINISHER:) Brutally tough!! But oh so much fun. We climbed and climbed and climbed. I remember on the last real climb up to 3000 ft I thought I was lost and then a 50 mile guy passed me by and I said thanks I thought I was lost and he said onI think on  this course when in doubt go UP:) Which seemed to be the case. The views were amazing, the people spectacular and the aid stations were packed with goodies and great volunteers. My only complaint was that my drop bag wasn’t at the turnaround but I survived. I took about 50 photos. I met lots of cool people. Plus I got some great training for AC 100 (and a bit of Poison Oak). Thanks everyone who hepled me along the way. Up next, Holcomb Valley 33 Miler June 14th.
