Anybody in here running Mt Hood next weekend? It's my 2nd 50-miler (the first was two yrs ago - AR50). Getting anxious, but a good anxious.
The link to the report is here.

Hey Fatozzig - I saw a Leslie from CA in the results. I hope that's you. Congrats.
There are some great pics of the race on the website. What a beautiful course.
Yeah, that was me. The photographer got lots of pics, including one of me that looks like my left leg has some kind of rot going on. Weird, indeed. Unfortunately, he didn't get me and my friend, Kate, at the finish line. Bummer! Got the young stud we chicked about a mile or so from the finish, though.
I finished in 12:13:41, which was a 40-min PR for me from my only other 50-miler two years ago, American River. Kate would've finished well under 11 hours, but she was using this as a long run for Cascade Crest and ran the whole thing with me.
Had a great time (most of the time) and am ready to go back!
Nothing in this post to look act. Return to your regularly scheduled routine.
