Congrats Fueco. Awesome race. I've about this before. Watch the heat. IIRC, Ultrarunning magazine race reports had the heat as a big factor in finishing. I'm thinking the sand was an issue too, but haven't looked it up. I do remember reading about more than the heat. It is a popular race, but harder than advertised, if that's possible to underestimate a 100M ultra.

I'd like to sign up for a 100M next year. Something to celebrate 50th B-day.

Great year-end total but I kicked your ass. 1,744.4. 1.7 miles (or 0.097% of our yearly totals) counts as an ass kicking right?


I got in 6.1 miles for my first outdoor run of the year today. It was 8º but there was no windchill to speak of and not much snow on the ground so really not bad at all. We've been lucky in the snow department so far this season compared to last so I am not going to complain.

Last year I had a goal of 2,014 miles but I obviously missed it. Looking back at my monthly totals it was all due to some serious slacking in January through April. I'm unofficially aiming for 2,015 miles this year but it will depend on how I do in the first two months of the year whether or not it will be feasible.

Besides the local runs I'm planning to run the Marine Corps Half Marathon in Camp Lejeune, NC in September, the Detroit Marathon in October, and possibly either a 17.75k run in March or the Marine Corps Historic Half in May (both in the Quantico, VA area). I'd like to also get out west to New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, or somewhere like that with some elevation for a half marathon.

Thank you sir! I'm certainly enjoying to the process of getting race fit for this beast.

 

As for the weather, I'd much prefer the dry heat of October/November in Phoenix over the muggy oppressive heat of other places. I was pondering the Superior 100 (northern Minnesota in August), but figured that was too close to now. I'm not in the best shape right now, but I'm working on it. My goal is to get whip thin by summer, and get back to the weight I was at at this time of 2012. If I can lose those 25 pounds, nothing will stop me (I'm already down a couple).

8 slow miles. Really struggled to finish. Friday rest day cant come soon enough.

post #10851 of 12862
7 mile easy run, finished right at sunset. This was also my first time running in Hokas since September, which felt odd...

I got in 3.0 miles on the treadmill this morning.

I have a friend who is currently down at Disney in Florida doing the Dopey Challenge: 5k today, 10k tomorrow, half marathon Saturday, full marathon Sunday. That honestly sounds like it would be a pretty fun time.
post #10853 of 12862
Maybe that's what my friend in Florida meant when she posted on Facebook that "it's time to get Dopey". This does look like a fun time... I see that day one is complete: my feed is filled with women dressed as Chiquita bananas running a 5k.
post #10854 of 12862
Yeah, my buddy ran his 5k just over 20 minutes. I hope for his sake he plans to slow down a bit for the next two runs.

It's like a reverse taper for the marathon.

Those Disney runs are insanely crowded. I'm pretty close to Orlando so I thought about signing up for one of them, but everyone I've talked to said they're super packed and you have to wait for several hours at the starting line before the race begins. Although, I'm guessing the other popular marathons (Boston, NYC) may be similarly crazy.

There's nothing quite as satisfying as a good run to wash away the memory of a bad run... crushed my 8 mile loop today :bigstar:

6.9 miles yesterday and 6 miles today.

Oh the pain and embarrassment of my poor performance. Knew I should have ran a couple miles that last day.
I have revised my 2015 goals to run 2015 + 1.8 miles for a goal of 2016.8 to exact my revenge on MP.
Nice year MP. How crazy is it that we were within 2 miles after an entire year of running.

Dances w/ Dirt - Green Swamp edition is for you.

6 miles after dark on neighborhood streets... Good times! Now to rest up for Saturday's long run!
