Iditorod Trail Invitational-Geoff Roes Wins (Read 675 times)


Dog-Love

    Thought I would post an article on our formerly-local runner Geoff Roes' effort in the Iditorod Trail Run.  This is a 365 run bike or ski race that follows the Iditorod Trail.  Its a long article go grab a cup of coffee or a beer.  Makes me want to stick to my comfy 10Ks.

      Geoff Roes? Some unknown guy? Has he even ever run anything as long as a marathon or longer, before?

      It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

        He is running a local 50k tomorrow.  I am working an aid station (for smalcolm, who is the big cheese. Of the aid station. Not the race. Settle down.)

         

        I will try to get his autograph.

            I do not even think he made 4 mph in that race ~ Is a hiker?

              Thanks Crabby! I was reading his trail diary with photos and video clips of his endeavor just last night with great interest. IMO quite a courageous endeavor.

              Use your momentum...keep going.  You know you can make it.

                Seriously?

                 

                Not really. But in my defense, I have not caught an opportunity to watch Unbreakable. In which I think he may get an appearance. Or two.

                It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

                  Thanks for that, I'm a big fan, he's an amazing athlete and seems like a really humble guy.

                      I was coming in to make a joke about the Bruce Willis version.

                        Shouldn't you be getting some shut eye so you can be at your bottle-filling best tomorrow?  Jenn Shelton expects you to be on your A-game.

                          The excitement is keeping me awake.

                           

                          What is she gonna wear???

                           

                          What if I dump heed on Hal's beard?

                           

                          (BTW, it looks like Mr Roes won't be running)

                            It will melt the beard.  Stuff is that nasty.  (That's not stopping all the races I am doing this year from using it.)

                             

                            Dump it on his capris.

                              The excitement is keeping me awake.

                              Huh? And, heed??

                                I made up the heed bit.  I have no idea what drink is served at chuckanut.
