<i>In case you don't check coolrunning's Race Reports area, here's the same thing I posted over there.</i><br><br>
If you've read my reports before, you know that they are usually long. If you have not, fair warning. This is the longest report, by a lot, that I've ever posted here.<br><br><a href="http://srlopez-maniac111.blogspot.com/2007/09/0912307-triple-marathon-weekend.html" target="_blank">The Tale of the Triple</a><br><br><b>Short version</b>: In preparation for my 'quadzilla' (4 marathons in 4 days) later this month, I decided I'd better try a triple (3 in 3 days) first.<br><br>
So over labor day weekend, I ran the Pocatello Marathon, the New Mexico Marathon, and the Amercian Discovery Trail Marathon.<br><br>
As with just about anything... especially almost 79 miles of running... some aspects went well and some did not.<br><br>
Do not go in there expecting stories of sub-3s, BQs, and hardware.<br><br>
I had fun nonetheless. And I did not, in fact, die.

Nicely done, Stevie Ray. That's an accomplishment to be proud of!<br><br>
Mexican food sure is tasty, but it's the absolute worst pre-run meal for me. Now post-run is a different story. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Good luck in the quadzilla!

The funny thing is, I've eaten Mexican food before a race before. In fact, when traveling, I've had to resort to...yeeep... Taco Bell. And I've been fine. Usually.<br><br>
youjustneverknow<br><br>
I certainly do not recommend it to the runners I work with, though <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">.<br><br>
Of course, I also recommend ice baths... something else I almost never personally do.<br><br>
Thanks for the nice comments. A new report about my next weekend (this past weekend) will be up in a bit.

Well done, Robert.<br><br>
Tahoe's gonna be a logistical cakewalk, comparitively. Plus, you have a natural ice bath at the finish of each day.<br><br>
Out of curiousity, what is your PR for number of marathons (or beyond) in one calendar year?<br><br>
Way to go, hope you're staying healthy.

Sunday's Skagit Flats was my 40th of 2007, which is my record.<br><br>
Last year I did 36 total... which was my old record.

Seriously, wonderful job, <b>sr</b> - I always like reading your RRs. I think you'll do just fine in your quest for a quadzilla

I shake my head in wonderment and pity. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
