Hey People.

Most likely this will sell out.

Don't delay if you want in.

My App was in the mail box this morning at 7:15 AM, waiting for a ride from the mail truck.

This will be my 2nd effort at LT's event.

Last time I was there it was still an FA.

Vince Rucci was running all the hills and I was dumb enough to follow.

Spring time in Ohio is always awesome after the thaw.

 

Will have a cooler for afterward if anyone is thirsty.

Mostly IPAs, so if you want something light, BYO.

the PRT is not somewhere to drop my morals and ethics and roll in the mud and muck and pretend those I am talking to aren't really people at all and it's alright to treat them like dirt.

Hey Roots!

 

There are 4 of us who sent our registration forms yesterday - yikes!  What are the chances of us making it in on the wait list?

It's race week!

 

For anyone still on the fence about stepping up to the 50k, this year we have an incentive award for finisher of the 50k ultra distance.

 

Special thanks to katholeenie and her Sherwood Inn Pottery for the design of these gorgeous mugs.

 

See you there!

Random thoughts on the Fools Run.

Awesome Day to be out on the trail.

Blue Skies all around.

LT and his crew did a very nice job with the event.

Need to give thanks to Meredith for pulling/pushing me over 20+ miles.

Salt Run is a tough way to finish up a 50K.

Finishers Mugs are very nice.

 

As always, the best part is sitting around with the post run buzz sharing the camaraderie with other individuals.

Nice Job LT.

Thanks.

LT, I have been using my finisher's mug from last year weekly at work when I have oatmeal for breakfast.

Just wanted to share that little bit of info.

Looking forward to another loop or two around the Cuyahoga Valley on April Fool's Day.

 

Let me know if I can do anything to help you out with your event.

Or NEO Trail as well.

 

Thanks for being the RD for this event.

We appreaciate your effort.

Hi all,

 

It seems like a perfect place to post but sorry for the irrelevant response as it has nothing to do with the above. But it's perfect in the sense that it is linked with my questionnaire..

Sorry if it's totally irrelevant but I was just wondering if people could do me a huge favor and please fill in a quick 2 minute questionnaire on the motivations for participation in long distance running. It is for a university thesis so it would be a huge help for the research.

 

I'm a student at Sheffield Hallam University and very much into ultra races. I've been working alongside RacingThePlanet, an ultra-marathon company based in Hong Kong. I have been out to there events in Iceland and the Gobi Desert and would highly recommend their 4Deserts events series.

The survey is looking for ultra runners. The current literature linked with participation and the motivations provide analytical views and studies on the concept of class/cultural/social and economic aspects related to running.

(sorry for spam posting! But just thought from reading the thread members would be the perfect group to target)

 

Confidentiality is assured. Thank you in advance!
