The first two or three hours were actually pretty good, but from mile 18ish to the finish was a consistent mix of ankle-to-shin-deep mud, trough puddles and cold rain that amply compensated for any enjoyment we experienced during the first half. Somehow Ethan must have levitated over all of it, finishing practically half a day before we did.
Thanks to Kevin for snapping a few weather-appropriate pictures during the day, and to Paul for logging another ultra together.

|Mile 13 or so?|
|Around mile 20, when things started to get ugly|
