""...the truth that someday, you will go for your last run. But not today—today you got to run." - Matt Crownover (after Western States)
Sunmart is held on trails in a state park outside of Huntsville, TX. It's the same place that the Rocky Raccoon series of races (25/50K in Nov, 50/100Mi in Feb). Nice place! Marshall is awesome! Way to go from one NTTR member to another)...
Noticed your 50-miler on Saturday (no - you don't have privacy here. Get used to it. )
Congrats! Am I right (based on my nosy trolling around your log) that it's a PR over the last couple years? Where is Sunmart anyway? (I'm nosy, yes, but too lazy to follow through. Sad, ain't it?)
Well done! Really looking forward to doing my first 50 someday, but even though I'll be running some of it, I'd still be awful happy with your time. Can't believe you can almost break 11 hours without running a step.
Is it just coincidence that all these ultras in Texas keep popping up in conversation ... or is Texas some sort of Mecca for ultra-runners/walkers?
I'd have to say it is probably coincidence. Texas does have some great ultras, lots of great ultrarunners/walkers and at least two great ultra/trail clubs (North Texas Trail Runners and Hill Country Trail Runners) but probably it is the coincidence of jlynnbob and I both joining RunningAhead independent of each other. There are ultras in almost every state, but I would say the ultra "meccas" are Colorado or California, with Virginia running a close third. But like I said, there are great ultras in AR, PA, KS, WY, UT, NM, TN, etc., etc., etc.
Is there a good site that lists all ultras?
