Last time I had this title it was about my dnf. This year I finished in 22:45 and 10th place. There were 140 starters and only 66 who finished.

Hey dirtrunner, thanks for the report. That's awesome - congratulations on the fantastic time ... as you say, quite the difference between this year and last!

So what did you do differently this time? All those rocks are still there... :-)

I ran in the heat and humidity all spring and summer and also ran 100 mile training weeks.

The heat and humidity were just brutal. The rocks are still there.
I worked Winona station again, miles aprox. 32 (going out) and 85 (back.) Half a dozen dropped there going out but none coming back. Both facts are unusual. Those who made it 85 had survived the daylight hours and were determined to finish.
dirtrunner beat a very tough day in a terrific time. I remembered him as soon as he said: "Great to see you guys but I'm not stayin' HERE!"
P.s. We didn't do the bonfire this year.

It was strange to come into aid stations and not see any other runners. I remember last year going into powerline, turnaround and lake winona and seeing lots of runners. I wrote up a race report on my blog. The traveller has the best aid stations.
