I ran this in 2008, 2009 and volunteered 2010 and again this year.
Last year it was cool to have Zach Gingerich racing (winning)
this year my excitement is over
USA 24 Hour Champion
I am not sure what her intentions are, but she signed up late - Maybe a good training run, maybe to take a swing at a big number? Bummer is its gonna be hottish.
Hopefully seeing the athletes gets me to get my but in gear and lose the 40# I need to.
Retired 1/1/13 ... Tired of being broken and fat ... Hit 296# Memorial Day 2016 - New goal = To be able to enjoy running 4-5 hours through the woods again by Fall 2016. April 2017
I know you'd rather be running than crewing. It's not an easy job be there and see your runner for only a few seconds/moments each loop. Harder to do than pacing, imo. Hats off to you.
I haven't heard what Connie's goal is but I know she wants that 144+. Time is ticking...
