Novice Ultra Runner
Finished the Bob Potts Marathon today in about 5 1/2 hours. Official results aren't posted yet. This represents the longest time ever I've been on my feet running. Two months ago when I first started training for NC24 my long run was about 9 miles. My weekly mileage is still hovering in the 35-40 miles range as we've concentrated on extending my long run. Just under 4 months remaining until the Fall NC24. I think it's time to re-label me from middle distance runner to something else except I'm fresh out of ideas.
2013 Goals: Mile - 7:45 (SB 7:53.74); NC24 12-Hr (completed 49.6 miles)
Nice job George! Was a beautiful day for a run!
Nice job! I'm targeting about the same time for my first marathon at the end of June.
Run! Just Run!

Congrats on the race George. Can't wait to see what you do at NC24.
Are you doing this for world peace? For the homeless? Are you running for women's rights? The environment?
They couldn't believe somebody would do all that running for no reason.
Run Muppy - thanks, and I couldn't agree more about the conditions.
mj - good luck in yours. Hope you get as good weather as I had.
Jamezilla - thanks, this was a real boost in confidence. Ian has me running workouts I wouldn't have believed I could do this soon. If you're ever looking for a coach, I would recommend him.
