<p>Nothing really for me. Zoe has had some hardcore teething this week with sleepless nights and fevers <img alt=":(" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//sad.gif" title=":("> my feet are finally feeling better from last week's 100. whew. Maybe get a run in later, but not holding my breath <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/lol.gif" title=""> I am planning on the Bartram 100 in December and maybe a NYE 24 hour race. I was going to do Motherroad instead of Bartram but after talking to some BTDT folks last week, I decided not to go. One said she had 16.5 miles inbetween aid stations! WTF?</p>

<p>I got dropped off at the side of the road about 50km from Ottawa on Friday night, then ran home.  It was a beautiful night with a full moon.</p>

<p>Ran the Woodstock Hallucination 100 and actually managed to finish the thing. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/rolleyes.gif" title=""></p>
<p>25:19:43.9</p>

<p>Oh, and Lurker Bob turned out to be camping one space down from me... this man is everywhere! He also had a successful day at Woodstock!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>May do a race report in the near future... what's the rule? 1 day per mile?</p>

<p>Ran 24 miles on the trail plus a mile walk on Friday, then ran 12.5 on the road with the local HM training group on Saturday.  Getting ready to taper in a couple of weeks for the Dogwood Canyon 50K in Lampe, MO on October 31.</p>

<p>Markc - that sounds awesome. Very cool idea. I'm not confident enough to pull that off. I guess the incentive is there to get to the finish though!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I raced a local half marathon on Saturday. I was aiming for sub-1:40 but came in 1:41:40-something. Still a PR by about a minute so I'll take it. The sudden heat wave and low-mid 80's during the race were not welcome.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Ended up riding the bike for an hour Sunday morning to try to loosen up the left glute. That seemed to work so ran 15 miles on my 3 mile loop. It gets dull, but the ability to stop by the car for water every lap was worth it.</p>

<p>Ugly day in NC - late September is supposed to be a lttle cooler than 97 humid degrees that it hit yesterday afternoon at Hinson Lake 24 hr run. It probably didn't get much below mid -70's for the night either. So after 20-30 miles or so it became apparent that  my quest for 100 miles in 24 hours wasn't going to happen, the sandy course beat me up, and I have lost some of the heat acclimation that I had built up in the summer.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So I kept moving the goalposts as I was slowing and needing more time to rest up between loops, and eventually decided that the best that was going to happen was 100K. So ultimately it became a great last long training run before Javelina.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I absolutely love this race and I am looking forward to splashing out the $24 entry fee next year, can't recommend it highly enough.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I was also witness to what could well end up being the fastest 100 of the year - Mike Morton hit 100 in 13:14, and 153 miles total and had a brilliant race</p>

<p> </p>
<p><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="color:#800000;"><img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/confused.gif" title="">   The rest of the year ?  Would be happy to do the pacing thing and call it a year.   If that duzzint werk out then maybe something in November.  Still shopping  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/rolleyes.gif" title=""> . </span></span></p>

They pulled me from the course at 47 miles, i had a handheld on me as well. I was a bit bummed. I had to hitch a ride back with an aid station volunteer. The VT50 is one of my slowest 50 M finish times (i finished it the year prior to the year I was pulled) of all my 50 mile races. It should probably have a 13 hour cutoff like Pinelands because so many people time out of the VT50 every year. I would not worry too much about your ability to finish. I ran almost identical splits to the year i finished, but the second year they pulled me, the first year they let me go thru, i got there with a minute to spare, the second year i missed it by a couple minutes.</p>
