      Helmet-cam, baby!

       

      Well, if you wear a helmetcam, make sure not to land headfirst.

      It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

        Ah. I suppose you're never too old to learn you're not young anymore.

          Water crossings = wet feet.  Solution?  Keep on running, they dry.   Big grin


          There were about 10 or more water crossings not to mention shoe removing mud.

            Such an amazing weekend!  The RD and all the volunteers went above and beyond in making sure everyone was taken care of and happy.

             

            I didn't take as many pictures during the race as I was hoping to, but I did get some.  The rest are just from the weekend overall.  

             

             

            Here is the link to my FB album from the weekend:

                Mishka will be writing a race report for us.  He's much better at putting experiences into words.  Smile

                    Definite congrats. Looked at the pics, I won't be whining about the one little water obstacle we have in our upcoming 50. Okay, that's a total lie, I will be whining about it, but I'll feel a little guilty. Excellent work both of you!

                    See evil. Hear evil. Speak evil. The monkeys they never talk about.

                      That's the beauty of ultrarunning. Pretty much every one I have done had that experience.

                       

                      Congrats to you both! Looks like a heck of a run!

                        Thanks Sara! The weekend really was amazing. Both the race, and the rest of the weekend were brand new and very cool experiences. Ultra people are awesome!

                         

                        Also.....LONG race report to come today. That's okay, right? Long just matches the race. Smile

                            I'm glad you and Michelle had a good time. And your money's worth! Congrats to both of you!

                            Passion is a rather frightening thing because if you have passion you don't know where it will take you.
