Conditions: Rain, mud, slop, and more down-pouring rain.
Summary: As of this moment, I hated this race like no other. I hated this race. HATED. It was pouring rain and really, this should have been called a trail race. 3 to 4 inches of mud, giant rocks, slippery hills up and down. I didn’t sign up for trail. I don’t like trail. My ankles were killing me from the uneven surface, so I had to walk. I forgot my headphones. I forgot a baseball hat. I had no music. I had water beating up my eyeballs for 5+ hours. Stuff it, Asheville.
