Hey strangers! How is everyone? I have been busy with work and kids and not around much.
Did the C&O Canal 100
over the weekend. Here is a brief recap.
My training all winter was bad. Injuries etc. I have done 4 runs between 20-22 miles all year, that was it. Plus a few miles each day. To keep my streak going.
So i was under trained but healthy at the start.
98 miles of the race is flat on the C&O canal towpath. there is a steep 1/2 mile descent to the path. do that twice. 60 mile loop then a 40 mile loop.
Race started at 7am saturday with a Sunday 1pm cut off.
112 people signed up. 17 DNS. 31 DNF. 64 Finished.
I ran with a HS friend. We have done other races together. He was undertraineed also.
It went much better than expected. We did a run/walk strategy. Weather was great. Running all night wasn't bad.
We finished in 23 hours 23 minutes 16 seconds. We finished in 17th and18th place overall. And 2nd and 3rd in the 50-59 AG.
