That's not even a marathon. Sad!

Neat. I hope to see you there. We'll have an FE.

FE? :mischief: :blush:

Are you going to wait until mid day to start?  : pbbt:  Hope it goes well. Wish I had kept this race in the back of my mind, would have liked to volunteer but we have other plans.

Race name / distance:  Cool Moon / 50-mile

Location:  Cool, CA

Date:  Saturday, August 12

Goals:  I am deeply offended that ultrasignup.com predicts I won't even break 14 hours, so I'm carrying a grudge into this one.
Parent - - By IB [us] Date 2017-08-11 1:42 PM
Run smart, run well & run sub 14!

Thanks, dude. Look, we think you should lend Froggy to us for a while. For the recovery.
Parent - By IB [us] Date 2017-08-11 6:27 PM
He's real good at stepping on sore toes.
Parent - By jaszflamus (I like wool!) Date 2017-08-11 4:09 PM
Double Cool Moons!:cool: That's all going to be fun so enjoy it! And definitely break it to prove the prediction wrong.:mischief:
Parent - - By soundandfury (100 mile stud) Date 2017-08-15 1:28 PM
Ultrasignup's algorithm-thingy put my target at 14:08:00. I hoped to break 13. Ran 11:10. Take that, ultrasignup predicting algorithm thingy. :mutmad:

It has me at 17:02 for my 100K at the same venue where I ran 19:49 for 100M.

It predicted some absurdly fast time for me at JJ100 a few years ago. Gilligan should delete the feature.

It's all a function of the course record and your percentage.  I don't know how they calculate the percentage thingee, although it can be fairly accurate as a comparison measure among competitors, but the targeted finish prediction is often way off if there's a big disconnect between how competitive (i.e., "fast") the race is versus most of the races in your history.  I figure, competitive races like Javelina or Lake Sonoma, they're going to predict something too fast, whereas smaller races like Cool Moon they'll predict something too slow.  STILL.  I beat my prediction for the 25-mile only by about 20 minutes.  You beat yours by 3 hours! :shocker!:  I think that may have something to do with the smaller pool of people who have finished the 50 at Cool Moon, as compared to the 25-mile, but it's also because you're considerably faster than your percentage reflects (since many of your races are training runs or runs where you've paced someone.)

I knew that you would crush the prediction thingies but didn't know that you would crush them that much.:shocker!: That is one fucking nice run! Major congratulations, my friend!:cool::hug:

If it's not too much to ask, I think we'd appreciate some kind of recap of this one. Not necessarily a full narrative like you used to do but at least a summary in your inimitable style. I'd like to hear how you really crushed this, especially your thoughts along the way but also your training leading up to it.
