The course was not just muddy for nearly all of it, it was rutted mud for a lot. Not more than 1-1/2 miles in, I pulled an endo on a 12" drop. Didn't damage anything but my pride and my camera that was in the pack. At least I didn't lose my phone.
Thirteen slick, muddy, rutted miles of 90% downhill later, I finally finished up.
I'm exhausted, dirty, sore and demoralized. Maybe I should start acting my age? I think I'll go have a beer.
