    Through 5 hours, Buzzie's completed 34 laps (@ 0.90075/mi) = 30.62 miles

     

    Its early, but she's on the lead on pace for 147.

     

    Lead men through 42 laps and 182 pace

     

    Field not as deep as in past years, but its nice and cool today with high forecast low 60s. Hope the rain holds off through the night.

      Buzzie and Sue are through 73 laps at the 12 hour mark.  The women's race is tight with the top four all within 4 laps of each other right now.  The men's leader is only at 82 laps, with M2 at 80 laps -- it is quite possible that a woman could be first overall.  Go Buzzie and Sue!!!

            Buzzie -- sorry to hear about your issues, but kudos for going out to put in a few more miles.  It is so hard to do that.

                Congratulations, Sue!! Smile

                 

                She was rock-steady all day and night, regardless of the weather and all other ultra aggravations. Disciplined with the walk / run. And when she ran, she ran fast! (Apparently we forgot to tell her about the ultra shuffle ... )

                  It was great meeting you, Liz. You looked strong after getting the second wind and I thought you were in the thick of it. Sorry about the foot issues. The RDs put on a great race this year. It was too bad about the weather. I actually think it helped me because I don't think I could've run more than 125. I was hoping for 120 and planned a slightly more aggressive pace to account for a fade. I didn't fade as much as I thought I would. Nice surprise. Connie Gardner helped clear part of the course of water after the storm, and also helped at the aid station. How awesome was what!? I tried running slower but faster feels more comfortable . That's why I take walk breaks from the start...it slows me down. Good redemption race for me. Last year I went out much too fast and faded badly. This year I was more disciplined and knew how to push past pain/discomfort.

                    Does anyone know the top 3 men and top 3 women approx distance

                     

                    Sue - Is this congrats on the win with @ 125? - If you great race with what sounds like some challenging weather.  I like rain, I do not like wind.

                        Congrats Sue!

                         

                        It's weird they don't have the results posted.  They did a nice job with the on line tracking.  It was cool seeing both Sue and Liz on the front page.

                          I'd rather see them do a good job at the course than be timely posting the final relults afterwards. Sounds like they did a much better job at the course than in the Spring. I'll likely be back in the Spring.

                              Timing / counting appeared to work flawlessly - beeps at every mat crossing, with name, lap count, and distance displayed on a monitor just beyond the mat. The monitor also showed entries for the preceding 5 (?) people who crossed the mat.

                              Additionally, there was a video camera set up to record the action at the line.

                               

                              A monitor in the pavilion showed overall ranking and related info for the entire field in real time.

                               

                              I was impressed that they were able to keep all that stuff up and running with the wind, water and hail howling in off the lake - directed right at the timing and aid tents.
