Race Report - Flatlanders 6 Hour
Long story short, Eric had an awesome day and put up the 3rd most miles ever in the event at 43.37. I ran strong until just after the 50k mark then had some stomach troubles that slowed me down a bit before I bounced back and ended up with 41.68 which is now the 5th most miles in the 9 year history. Not bad for a grinding trail runner.
The best thing from the event was that my wife also came out and ran some miles. She has just started running and is training for her fist 1/2 marathon next month. Her training plan called for 7 miles and she put in 12.6. She's awesome! To me, that's the cool and inspiring stuff. I've run 40+ miles before. My buddies working super hard in the 12 hour race had covered whatever miles they would achieve for the day. Micaela, she'd never gone over 6 and she more than doubled that.
Also, my parents brought our daughter out to watch. I'm not sure what she put in but she racked up some miles on foot and on her bike!
