Longest run ever, probably the second most painful experience of my life after the morning after I had 16 shots of bacardi to end a 18 hour fast. Did it all on an empty stomach aside from a sip of water when I woke up and a couple sips of gatorade on the drive up to Sandy. Basically about 16.5 miles of a hard but fair run, then I bonked and the next 5.5 were pure hell. Started at 7AM on the dot, wore a black shirt along with black shoes, shorts, and spandex. Not a cloud in the sky either. I didn't feel like I would but I was pretty worried I'd black out without warning the last couple of miles. Even though I do think they look kind of dorky I think I need to make an investment in one of those ultra running backpacks if I wanna be able to do these long runs and not die lol. If anyone with experience with long long runs has advice on good food before/during runs please lmk(I was thinking clif bars, I tried a gel once and it made me sick after the run was over, willing to try again though). I was most worried about my legs on this run, they have been getting better by the day since the weekend and I knew I could do the normal 10 and 5 but I was really worried I'd get 11 out and hurt myself, but my sheer stupidity and defiance of physiology prevailed once again. Good character building today, run even managed to take less than 3 hours despite lots of huge hills + walking after the bonk so I wouldn't pass out or anything(cannot emphasize the magnitude of this bonk).
