      I'm going to provide updates after the 12 hour mark, but I will be doing it in the gsp (rather than updating it in three different forums).

                Here is a very weird bit of FANS stuff. Which no one will care about but which makes me super sad about the state of my own club.

                 

                So.... in the Maniacs, one can get credit for Fixed Duration races by hitting a certain minimum mileage.  Turns out that this is 26.2 miles for races declared "8 Hour" and shorter. And 31 miles for races with longer fixed durations.  Say what you want about whether folks should be trying for more than 31 miles if they sign up for a 24 hour race, or whether 8 Hours should be the dividing line. Etc etc.  That's the rule.

                 

                Last Winter, FANS sent me a note asking me if I thought they needed to set up an 8 Hour version of FANS.  Seems that a few Maniacs had been lobbying them to do this because they didn't think they could hit 26.2 in the existing 6 Hour race. And they absolutely didn't want to attempt 31 in the 12 Hour.  31 miles!  So they kept pestering FANS to set up a whole new race.

                 

                I told them no.  Please don't do it, at least not for that reason.

                 

                Yikes.

                 

                GOOD LUCK MIKE, JENNIFER, and others participating and/or crewing this weekend!!!

                  I think we have Buzzie and Don S (Mr. Sullivan as DB puts it) also doing the 24 hour.

                    I always thought gsp stood for 'gun shot poon'.

                     

                     

                    ok then

                      So you expect people to be able to run 26.2 road miles in under eight hours?  What, your club is for elite runners only?

                        I will post updates here.  And of course I will include Buzzie and Don.

                              A woman at NC24 asked whether I needed anything. A toothpick? And, she had one ... it's now in my kit.
