At this stage int he race the racers and gifted runners are finished or have DNF’d to try another day and the troopers are still chugging away toward the finish line.
The annual Squaw Valley to Auburn effort is well underway
Rob Krar under 15 hrs and Stephanie Howe just over 18 hours…..
I am still amazed at the cool technology we have to keep track of results from 3000 miles away before or after church or bed ( last night). Nothing new or fancy but just as cool.
I have a goal of a 100 miler but with my legs (multiple surgeries on knees,ankle etc [football fun in my youth] has me wondering about the “smarts” of such a goal. Now WSER or Leadville may be crazy but there may be some courses that won’t break me(distance can do it all alone ).
Returning to the races and adding distance to the collection of 26.2 finishes will be the first step…”baby steps” to the ultra distance thanks to Bob Wiley from the movie, “What About Bob?”
