      It was great seeing your family out there!! Michelle did a wonderful job and it was fun having Zach join in with Jr for a couple laps in the night (thank you so much for that - you made Jr really happy!) :D

      Someday I should run this event so I know what people are going through from a race perspective. I did the first year 12 hour but it was a training run for a 100 miler a month later. I think it would be hard to stay focused for me. Glad everyone had fun though :D

      I do too. I don't recall seeing any cars this time. Always a nice feeling. I wasn't sure the legs would feel ok, but I feel good. Hopefully I can say that about 80 miles into this weekend's 100!!!! It will be cool to do what Derek did for me in 2013 -- paced me 50 at Antelope then ran a sub 24 the week later at Pickled Feet! That was the original goal before I was asked to pace. We'll see how I'm feeling, but it would sure be awesome if I could do it!

      One nice thing is you have a roadmap from all the prior year results that show the lap times. Just go find someone who was under 24 (that was steady all day) and use their times as milestones to keep things in check along the way. If I was going to run for time I would set a table up down the way like some did last year to avoid wasting time at the aid station.

      I'd also take enough with me that I only had to stop at the table every 3rd lap or so. 40 times through the start/finish will rack up the non-moving time.

      Thanks, my not so secret goal is to crack 3 hours at the marathon I BQ'd at two years ago in May. This does give me a little confidence that I am heading in the right direction. The marathon only has like 90 feet of gain in the final 10k and the first 20 is an ever so gentle downhill (300 feet maybe?). Anyway, if the stars align and I am rested I feel like it's at least possible :D
