This will be fairly short. I'll let the other Chuckanutters add details.

Off from Vic. was Adrienne, Dan, and myself. Picked up race pack. on Friday at Fairhaven runners the day before. Pleasant little area, kinda of touristy.

Pasta dinner.
Bed by 9pm, did sleep well Adrienne and I, we think there was some kind of soliciting next door to our room which ended up in a huge yelling match at 12:45am.

I had ear plugs, didn't hear it. Restless sleep though.

Off for a cafe in the morning at the Starbucks drive through, slooooooow and complicated!

Race parking lot by 6:50am fills up quick so we were Pellow early of course!

Dan connected with some email buddies, I checked out the competition, just kidding. Only person I recognized was Scott Jurek.

Cloudy not raining away we go.

Fist 10K is flat on a gravel path. I see Adrienne way ahead, she must be excited.

I take it easy, maybe run 50 min first 10K. In this kinda of race when you never been before, I always say to myself when the running is good you must RUN! When there is a b@st@rd of a hill it will sloooow you down. So that's basically what I did all day.

Chatted with many runners American,a guy from Barcelona Spain, Russian lady, young lady 21yrs from Bellingham area.

Fast forward to the last 6 miles (Oh my I am talking miles!) this is where it is exciting. I pass Russian lady who is running the Grand Slam 100 mile ultra events. She is walking/running on the last 10K. I know she is toast, I am cruising in the last 10K. Advice from Rob Smith said " save something for the last 10K" I did, and have left nice Russian lady behind.

2 miles, I hate miles b/c they feel like so f***ing looong! Anyways see another lady. She looks tired. I am closing. Oh sh!t we are in the park. I am on her ass. I sprint the last 100m with her. Funny picture I am sure, one I am not a sprinter or do I have fast finishing legs, two I just ran 50K up a mtn. Anyways the crowd goes wild, I finish on her shoulder, behind by 1/2 sec.

I give her a hug and congratulate her!

I have learnt a couple things in the short time I have been doing ultras:

1. Train according to you, that is do what you think will prepare YOU for the course.

2. Save something for the last 1/3rd 1/4 or whatever it may be, this way you can pass many people.

3. I feel better each time I finish, getting faster, therefore I feel I can run harder longer during these 50K's.

So I eat a little, change and cheer in Dan, Adrienne.

First Male OA Uli Steidl 3:43 AMAZING!!!!
First Female OA Trish ? 4:51

Lindsay Pellow 5:20 maybe 10th or 11 female OA.
Dan Fraser 5:59 very happy to break 6 hrs!!!
Adrienne Gnidec 6:19 2nd in the F50,faster than she expected.

We will be back next year to all have PBs!!
