Hardrock draws near! (Read 410 times)


You'll ruin your knees!

    Hardrock's just around the corner!!!  Can't wait to monitor friends there. 

     

    Roch Horton: I always thought Hardrock was living your entire life in a single day. You go through every emotional high and low.

      You'll ruin your knees!

        The day fades into night, and we ascend slowly into the inky blackness. Up and up, until it seems we will step into the stars. Finally, there is no more up. We pick our way across the saddle and down the often poor trail into Little Giant Basin. When we hit the jeep road we are ready to run. Understanding has transformed me. There is pain, but it is meaningless. There is nothing to do but run down the hill. That's what were are doing, so that is what exists, and there is strength to do what needs to be done. It all seems very ordinary, very calm and very peaceful. There is nothing for the mind to do. There is no excitement or upwelling of emotion at the impending finish. Just run.  - Peter Bakwin race report after finishing the Rockhard Hardrock, or Double Hardrock in 2006.

                Lots more good Hardrock stuff at iRunFar, but Dakota Jones is losing the battle with taper madness!  Starts in the morning!!!

                  I'm back!

                    Wow, Darcy Africa and Krissy Moehl are ahead of Hal Koerner?

                      I don't think so.  It shows Hal in the lead pack with Dakota Jones and Joe Grant.

                        Yeah. The updates seem to have been behind for a while.


                        I'm back!

                          I didn't notice it until after the race, but Hal paced Timothy Olson to his course record at WS this year.
