Imminent Catastrophe

    Here

     

    Somewhat long. As usual, I learned some valuable lessons and tried to make it useful.

      I'm still reading the report, but about a page down into it is a nice map.  For me, it is a map of Boston.  Curious Smile

        Strange. Here's a link, if interested.

        Looks like the HTML embed code on RA is buggy. Is anyone else getting anything other than a map of Southeastern Arizona?

          I just pulled up the report.  Both links show Boston.  Are you sure you know where you ran?  Are you sure maybe you weren't partaking of a little peyote while runnin' ye ole pueblo?? Big grin

           

          MTA: I commented on your blog site, but congratulations, Russ!  You overcame the nasty, negative voices. 

           

          The pics are gorgeous.  I love the desert, so will have to put this one on my "Wish List."

              I'm seeing Arizona in the map in the report.

               

              Nice report, and gorgeous pix.

                Are you guys using IE9? Apparently there's a problem specific to it. And, why are you using IE9?

                  No.

                   

                  Firefox, current release.

                   

                  Ah, ok, now I see a piece of what's going on.  When I load up your report, I get an error from firefox telling me that a script is taking too long.  The script url is pointing at RA and I assume it is the map.

                   

                  And, for whatever reason, I assume that when the script fails (or firefox gives up on it), "Boston" is the default thing it presents.

                   

                  A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete.

                  Script: http://maps.gstatic.com/intl/en_us/mapfiles/api-3/4/5/main.js:23

                   

                  If I tell it to stop the script, I get a map of Boston (because I assume that's the default).  If I tell it to continue, it spins and spins and sends Firefox into a nonresponsive state for a bit, then comes back... with the proper AZ map.

                   

                  Perhaps this is a client side issue.  Don't know. I will reboot when I have a few minutes and see if it goes away.  But since this is also happening to at least one other user (fatozzig), it is possible it ain't me.

                   

                  MEANWHILE: I finished your report... sounds like a hard day!  That's the thing about a long race... you can bonk and then recover and continue.  All in the same race.  WOOHOO for the buckle! How do you feel today?

                    Yeah, that's a cool award. The next day, apart from being ravenously hungry, I felt OK, about the same as after my last road marathon (on asphalt). The more I run on trails, the less I like road races.

                      Great job Russ!!! Was this really your first 50 miler??? For some odd reason I thought you were an old pro at ultra's
