3rd time for me running a 100k. Was after some redemption as the first two races at this distance did not go well. Was defintely a hydration and nutrition issue.

Race was moved from Bandera to Camp Eagle mid week because of trail conditions at Bandera.

Plan was to start really easy and to make sure I was drinking early and often as well as eating. Purposely started further back at the beginning so when we got onto the single track trails I would not have a choice but to go slow. Worked well as the first 5.2 miles were really, really rocky. The next 5 miles opened up some and I was able to run a little faster still trying to stay patient. After mile 10 started to move up in the pack some and from this point on would never get passed all the way to the end. Came through the first 50k loop in 5:19, taking my time in that aid station and leaving 7 minutes later. Thought at this point I would have a shot of breaking 12 hours which would be awesome. Continue to work on catching people mile after mile. Around mile 47 or so is when I started to really push the pace. I felt confident that I was going to finish well, just had to put it on the course. Really wanted to eat up as many miles as I could before I had to use my headlamp. Finally, had to turn on my headlamp about 7 miles from the finish. Pushed hard the last 5.2 miles home (fell down three times in the dark) and did not fall at all the 57 miles before that. Knew I had a shot of breaking 11:30 with a few miles to go. Really started pushing all out at this point. With about 600m or so to go, knew it was going to be close. So I really started throwing down and sprinting. Just made it under the 11:30 mark. (11:29:55). Really happy with this effort and time. The day went awesome!

Went with Rudy to watch him race, but decided last minute to race it myself. Really enjoyed running in the snow today. Felt really relaxed, and just ran it for fun.

Had a really good race. Omaha trail was plowed but the Ped Bridge was Icey and Haftan Park In CB had some deeper snow. Good way to start the New Year. Bodies Race Company has some really fun races and great metals and Bling.

Tough course. Won my age group and first masters, although no masters award. Wasn’t planning on racing until after I had already put in quite a few miles this week. Skipped the plunge into Horsetooth Resevoir. Looked cold, especially since they had to break the ice.

Oh boy, not my finest day. I made a difficult decision to drop to the half instead of completing the full. Shockingly, the predicted rain held off during the race, but we did have conditions of 72 degrees, 94% humidity and 15 mph SE wind. The humidity hit me early on and I also experienced a left hamstring strain from about mile 10...an injury that I had experienced some in this training cycle. I dreaded getting to the half/full course split at mile 12.5. I went back and forth in my mind a million times what to do...cut my losses with the half or torture myself with the full. In the end I decided that I may be injuring my hamstring further if I continue with the full...and the humidity was seriously kicking my ass. Hence, I took the half turn off. I do not feel great about my decision, but I have to live with it. There will be another day. The race itself, the volunteers and crowd support were wonderful. Miami and Miami Beach are beautiful. I am thankful to God, my family, and to you all for your support.
