Amasa 15.5 Mile Trail RR (Read 40 times)


Occasional Runner

    Jo and I ran this race in Moab today and pretty well made a mess of it. I had high hopes for a big finish, but settled for 3rd Male Overall. We had a lot of fun though and we love running in Moab.

     

    I find it's easier to interject a little humor in my reports for these shorter races. Maybe because I'm not so damn tired.

      What's that saying? Not all who wander are lost. I frequently wander on runs, then look around and realize I am lost.

      Nice job finishing well even though you "wandered".

        Sounds like a cool race despite the wandering. That downhill section looks gnarly, and

        then to run on that loose, ankle-twisting sand.

         

        Thanks for feedback on the handheld, I was curious.

          Looks like a fun race...despite being lost.  It is beautiful out there...what were the temps like there?

            It was about 50 at the start and rose to 70ish during the middle of the day. It felt warm in some really exposed sections, but it was pretty nice for the most part.

              Looks like a fun day wandering around Moab! Thanks for the entertaining RR. Congrats to you and Jo on the awards! I'm hoping to make it out for the Moab trail marathon this fall, but not sure if it will work out this year.

                Looks like an awesome place to run, congrats to you and Jo both!

                  Running in Moab is really tough to beat!

                    Looks like a tough run! Those technical sections are formidable ...

                     

                    For you, however, par for the course (to use the most inapposite metaphor possible)

                      Thanks for checking it out. It's never easy to tackle these races. Sometimes I wish RD's would have some sympathy on us and let us just enjoy a leisurely run. That doesn't happen often enough.

                          Congratulations, and to Jo, too! What a weekend to bring home all those awards and medals.

                          Your sense of direction and determination to continue on in a race almost beats mine... Wink

                          Run for fun.

                            You got lost (or "wandered"), added some miles, still came in third, Jo came in 3rd for her group.  Sounds like a winner of a day all around.

                             

                            "but then I remembered I'm a trail runner and we don't whine about an extra mile here or there. "

                             

                            Good luck next week!

                              It was a really small race. I could have taken a nap and still cracked the top 10.
