: I tapered this week for the San Juan Solstice 50 miler. I figured it would be tough enough to warrant a taper even though my real focus is getting ready to do the whole TRT. As it turned out, I felt awful most of the race. Especially the first 2 climbs. We began on a dirt road that gradually led up to the first monster climb and on the road I got a horrible stomach ache. I thought I'd drop at the first aid, then at the second aid, then---well, dammit if I didn't just keep going thanks to getting ready for Tahoe. Sure, I wasn't running competitively like I wanted to, but I was getting in 50 miles nonetheless! This week marked my first week at real altitude for the month long Colorado/Tahoe trip.
