After resting Thursday & Friday, David ran the San Juan Solstice 50 miler as a training run. This also would prove to be more than a good test for the CT. The race has over 11,200ft gain in 50miles and David’s single largest daily gain will be 12,700ft over 60.5miles. The 50mile race course features some very steep climbs and David’s time of 13:46:37 (good for 57th place overall, 2nd in his age cat. by 5min) made him quite pleased. No doubt David is in great shape and very capable of the adventure in front of him!
