Cajun Coyote 100 RR...Winning Is Cool (Read 66 times)


Occasional Runner

    Here's my race report for my win at Cajun Coyote. It was a surreal experience and I loved every bit of the race.

     

    I want to especially thank Burke for all his help and support. My race wouldn't have been the same without him.

        Great report and great race. I'll probably be available next year if you need a pacer. After Pinhoti, I think I will just hang out for the rest of the year or run the half marathon the following weekend over by the house. I may be a little more difficult next year, though. I don't want my undefeated streak as a 100 mile pacer to end. Congratulations. You earned it.

          Very happy for you, Kelly.  None of us are too surprised that you reached one of your 2014 goals a year early.  I'm also happy Betsy didn't hurt her back bending over to hug you.  Enjoy your victory.  Pain is temporary, winning lasts forever.

           

          Glad this guy wasn't at the race.

              Terrific job out there Kelly.  It was fun following a few hours behind you. Also nice to see you out on trail the two times we reversed direction. I can also add that Burke is great crew as well, every time I came to the S/F area he was there to offer help.

               

              Congratulations on the win!!!!

                      Sweet victory!  You Sir have certainly earned it- the miles you log and the sheer number of races you compete in, are mind boggling.  I'm quite sure that won't be your only 100 victory Smile

                        Congratulations, Kelly! I bet it's a great feeling to win a 100 mile race. I bet running that 3rd loop in the opposite direction really was a great distraction. What is your favorite type of course for an ultra, point-to-point, out & back, or loop courses?

                         

                        Awesome job and thanks for sharing the RR.

                            Thanks for sharing your story and congrats.  The race I was in this past weekend had the 50 milers start 2 hours before the 50K.  They joined us around the 20 mark, so when I heard feet come up behind me I knew it was a serious 50 miler and I immediately step off the trail.

                             

                            Love the pictures of the swamps.  I actually thought of you and Burke when I took the picture of the board over the river as it looked a bit bayou.

                            I need to sign up for a race..

                              Thanks so much.

                               

                              I prefer a loop format, preferably 3-6 loops. I like to scout the trail so I can get to know it. It's course knowledge, and if you know how to use that to your advantage, it can really make a big difference.
