  1. RUN
    Norfolk 8.02 mi

    Would have liked to have done some form of distance tribute for VT today, but 32 miles, 32k, or any other variation was too far. Settled on 8 miles. 32/4 (32 students, 4=April). Last year me and Ne... read more

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

      I've also began to wonder if the deaths are even related to the runner's fitness. Time and studies pending, I'd be curious to know the increase in caffeine and NSAID consumption in runners, especially during high stress and intensity endurance events.

      Half's are the biggest money maker to all these marathons; there aren't many marathons in the country that just have the marathon and the ones that do are extremely large such as MCM, NYC, BOSTON, CIM, Chicago are marathons that stand alone and have such notoriety they don't need to rely on a half for profit
      I think if a half has a qualifying thing like you must have ran a 10k under 1:30 then you can run a half

    Rain, 32 mph sustained winds and 45+mph gusts. Temps must have dropped 20 degrees during the run.

    It's hard to believe that after nearly a decade of running ultras in Virginia, and being around the vhtrc crowd, this was my first Bull Run. I'll be frank. This was a humbling reminder ab... read more

      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.

  4. RUN
    Ghent 3.5 mi

    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.

      Why? No. Never mind. I read your earlier note, so I know why... but what are your saving yourself for? What are your goals this year? Your "A" races?

      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.
