Imminent Catastrophe

    Here.

    It was a really nice, small race. This is just the kind of run that I love--no crowds, no fluff, just a peaceful run through beautiful country. The same club (Mammoth Marathons) does races in Idaho and Nevada, which I will look into.

      Great report and I love the pictures, but I always get stuck in your website.  Love the video of  your doggies (running buddies) and then I spend time looking at the US map of the marathons you have run and wondering which marathons are next.  Thanks for the diversions

      Run like you are on fire! 5K goal 24:00 or less (PR 24:34) 10K goal 50:00 or less (PR 52:45) HM goal 1:55:00 or less (PR 2:03:02) Marathon Goal...Less than my PR (PR 4:33:23)

        Thanks Crabby. Unfortunately, the last dog in the video (Jasmine) expired suddenly and is no longer with us. FYI Maine is next (MDI Marathon in October).

          Nice report and sounds like a great run.

           

          Hope the ankle is OK ... and really does suck for old Jim, but does not sound like type of race/course if BQ was his priority ... hopefully he has a backup or its going to be a long winter thinking about those 12 seconds.

                Thanks. I always feel uncomfortable writing race reports, they seem egotistical. As if anyone cares about MY race. I hope to to make it about the race, not about me, that's one reason why I drove the route and took pictures the day before. I just figure that what I experienced along the route might help make the narrative a little more interesting.
