I'm in!

No agenda other than to have fun running through the woods with friends I haven't met yet. :-)

I'm in, too!  I'm getting excited, though tapering this week will likely kill me.

 

Buzzie,  cool!  I'm glad to see other Michiganders making the trip.

Next Saturday I will be at Happy Days drinking ice, cold, refreshing adult beverages...

Wait, I mean I will be working aid for the runners.

Yea, that is what I will be doing.

Also a chance I might sweep the course from Happy Days to the finish.

So any of you pushing the cut-offs for the 2nd half, I will be there to cheer you on and motivate you forward.

 

Got 20+ in from Station Road Bridge in Brecksville out to Boston and back today.

Hottest day of the year here.

Hope that it is cooler for BR100 than today.

 

Saw Mrs. Roots this morning, but LT was still out on his run.

 

Good luck with your taper madness everybody, and see you next weekend.

Movingon- did I sit with you and your husband at the pre-race meeting in '08?

 

Jim- thanks for volunteering!

 

100s aren't the best place to test new stuff, but I'm planning on rocking my new Sport Kilt and refining my "Mike's Hard Lemonade/ chia" iskiate energy drink. :-)

Jason, no husband, I was there with my mom and kids and my pacer. I think I ran with you a bit too.

 

Yeah Jim, have a beer for me... thanks for being out there, will ask for you at happy days!

Movingon- hope to see you again.  I only vaguely remember many parts of the race.  I suppose it was a trauma-induced amnesia thing (I DNFed at mile 64 in '08).  :-)

 

Brian- excellent point.  150 miles... someday...

I'm # 79 - the one with crazy hair, a fluorescent green tank (I think), and heaven-knows what else.

I'll be the barefoot guy wearing the kilt and/or boonie hat.  If someone else shows up in the same outfit, I'll be seriously pi$$ed! :-)

 

Sporti- thanks for helping out with check-in and marking!!!!

A few of us are meeting up Friday (July 30th) at about 5:00 at Max McQ's in Akron (http://www.maxmcqs.com/index.php) for the Burning River pre-race meal.  If you'd like to join us, come on down!  Just email me (robillardj "at" gmail "dot" com) to give me an idea so I can give the bar a head count.

had a great time but I am tired and looking forward to not setting an alarm in the morning ....

 

 

best wishes to all of those running .... I did my best to keep you from getting lost on the lower portion of the race!

 

enjoy the cooler temps!
