Runner: hey you are flying
Me: I know!!
Runner: took us 5 loops to catch you, you are killing it this year. You're on a 19 hour pace.
Me: WTF, yikes
I finished Umstead 100 in 23:11, 12th female, 66th overall 4th in age.
Yes I went out fast and did great the first 5 loops slowed on 6 and survived the death march on 6&7.
I want to thank my awesome crew/pacer Donato for helping me out and going above and beyond to get me through the race. Also a huge shout out to Courtney Leeham for helping me too. She was crewing her hubby Nate who ran a strong 2nd place.
This race is awesome from all the volunteers I think 300 help out in one way or another. All the runners crews for encouraging all of us runners and all the runners who I love being able to see so many times along the course we all kicked ass.
This was #3 , 100 miler of the year and my 90th 100 mile finish. Thanks to all my friends who support me and encourage me to keep pushing love you all.
Can't wait to run Umstead 100 again next year.
