I ran the Pocatello 50 miler. It was actually 53.5 miles. It's a really tough race with 3 large climbs. Starting out, I couldn't seem to get my hydration right. Finally after 35 miles, things were feeling better. At the finish line, the were serving loaded bake potatoes. They tasted great after running that distance. Super fun day.
