      I did enjoy the exchange...immensely...you have to consider that I spent nearly two hours tonight trying to fix a stripped out setscrew in a frickin' door knob...I'm serious! And it still isn't really fixed...the doorknob will probably come off again after about three pulls and of course it will happen when my wife uses it...and so anyway...would love a "Tabby Version" of my life...

      Mike, just aim for a BQ-10 at the min and you won't have a problem getting in. I'm guessing that the field will return to it's usual size.

      you could also do the all american marathon on sunday 5/4 at Fort Bragg, that looks to be a flat fast race as well

      The American marathon looks interesting. I don't think I can bust out a BQ anytime soon. My legs are still in recovery mode from all the spring races. I may just settle on not trying to BQ in 2015 and shoot for 2016. If I don't get in, then at least my BQ goes up to 3:10 when I turn 35 in 2016, and maybe I will aim for 2017. Just have to be patient, but it at least it gives me a nice long term running goal.

      Excellent tribute run. I'll think of the racers who passed and dedicate some miles to them on Saturday

      I still think the number of deaths would be the same. I'm sure almost everyone that died would have been able to qualify under hypothetical guidelines. Historically, it's not even the slowest people who die at races, but mostly middle of the pack, and occasionally faster runners (ie Ryan Shay).

      Yes that's true, most of them are much faster then just barely finishing shape. Ryan Shay is a bit of an anomaly as he's one of the few elites to die, and I want to say from memory it was due to an existing enlarged heart condition. I do think the half marathon is going to have to make some changes soon, someone somewhere is bound to take all these statistics and say "look half marathons kill 8-10 people a year on average". Even if that is a minuscule percentage of participants.

      You've definitely done a lot of hard racing this winter/spring. This seems to be very strong performance with all that fatigue in your legs plus the hot temps today.

    Loving this actual spring weather, as short term as I predict it will be. Thought some stuff over during the run and decided to withdraw from the C&O Canal 100 in two weeks.

      Agreed Steve. OD is a great race. Ran it in '10 and '12. Volunteered '09, '11, and '13. Might be time to hit it up again.

      So, I plugged my last marathon in and it says that I can do a 10:50ish hour fifty miler, if the 50-Miller is comparable to Richmond marathon...

      My "calculator" assumes ideal conditions in terms of both runner fitness and trail conditions. I could probably narrow down 133 feet to maybe 100-120, but I took the data from the difference in what elites ran for mountain ultras versus flat, and that was the consensus. As non high altitude elites, an extra minute for every 100-115 feet might be more practical for us. This puts Terrapin at about 4:55 for you, and Promise Land at 5:29.

      Btw, in 2012 Eric Grossman ran a 2:33 marathon just before setting the course record at Promise Land in 4:25. Using the "elite" 133 feet multiplier, this estimated his flat 50k to be 3:11, and with 7,400 feet of gain and 3 additional miles, a predicted Promise Land time of (210.5 minutes + 55.5 for elevation = 266 minutes or a 4:26). Pretty damn accurate I'd say.
