Scorched Sole 50 miler 2009

(Click on image for large size)







My game plan worked just fine.

I hung out at the back of the pack of 17 starters
Of this inaugural running of the 80k(50Mi) here in Kelowna.
This year was the first time that the newly rebuilt trestles were incorporated into the course, after the disastrous fire that burnt for weeks in the valleys and mountains behind Kelowna BC.

I ran the entire race with Gail and Janet.
We talked Ultra the whole way and by the second 30k loop of the Myra bypass we had managed to reel in about 6 stragglers.

I ran the 50 miles in 9:44:11 and finished somewhere in the middle pack.

Official points,standings and finishers medal will follow in due course. Made a movie that should give you an idea of the beauty up here to behold.
