    No distances posted, but the video is great. Wow, everybody is moving at a pretty good clip for a 24-hour race. You can even identify most of our favorites as they pass the camera. Nice big names on the bibs.

      Holy smokes, the pace out there is insane for a 24 hr.  I wonder if Ian is gunning for the 100M record (12:27:00):

                    Jon Olsen just took the lead as Ian Sharman steps off the track with leg issues.

                     

                    Seems like something is up with Chris as well.

                        Olsen just ran the 2nd-fastest track 100M by an American ever. He's done. He was chasing the record of 12:27:00.7, set in 1984 by Bernd Hienrich.

                         

                        DB and WG are still kicking ass and moving up.

                         

                        I continue to be amazed at Pam's distance. What is she thinking? This is going to be monstrous if she doesn't blow up. She was ahead of my 12-hr PR at 10 hours.

                         


                        Uh oh... now what?

                          Sorry to be picky, but names matter.  Heinrich, not Hienrich.

                          required reading for all doing ultramarathons.  After that comes

                          the books about ravens and fireweed and stuff.

                            Oops. My bad, but I claim copy/paste from Aravaipa Racing's FB page.

                             

                            Yes, required reading.


                            Uh oh... now what?

                              Another one done:

                               

                              Mike Arnstein finishes 100 miles in a blazing 12:57:45!!

                              He'll take his place in the top 10 Americans of all-time for 100 miles.

                              He's gladly made friends with the ground, panting, yelling, and celebrating in extreme pain and extreme joy.

                               

                               

                              ------------in my depths of inanity---somewhere in my mind is a memory

                              of a 6:27ish 50 miler... surely I could just do another one with three

                              minutes of relaxing along the way, right?  I simply cannot put this

                              into a mental perspective.

                               

                              Two outstanding performances at fall creeps towards winter.

                               

                              Wowzes!

                                5 Pam Smith 86.49

                                 

                                DB and WG are still kicking ass and moving up.

                                 

                                I continue to be amazed at Pam's distance. What is she thinking? This is going to be monstrous if she doesn't blow up. She was ahead of my 12-hr PR at 10 hours.

                                 

                                They haven't updated lately, but Pam would be tantalizingly close to breaking Ann Trason's record for 100 miles (14:29.44).  There are some amazing performances going on out there.
