FASTTrack 24 this past weekend..

Top 13 highlights

1) Seeing my buddy Danny Ripka run 50km in the 6 hour race after double knee replacement. Danny paces with me on the Clifbar team and we also go back three decades to win we competed with each other at the FANS 24, I think Rocky-Creed style but he would beat up a lot on me back in the day. It was an honor to have him crew for me after the 6 hour. I’m not sure there is anyone doing what he is in the country with new knees. I’m very proud of Danny!

2) Seeing my buddy Jersey Mike running in his first 6 hour race. Mike also is a Clifbar teammate, typically crews the 5 and 5:30 marathon groups and always makes me laugh with his humor. Of course he brought his typical music box and was jamming out on music with a big howl each time I passed. Always making me smile. After his 6 hour it was great to have him team up to crew me for the first time.

3) My friend Tracey Outlaw running his first 6 hour race and throwing his typical enthusiasm into the event.

4) Being somewhere warm that actually hit 60 degrees!

5) Seeing a man riding his horse down the sidewalk across the street when I came out from the Walmart in Palatka, Florida at 10:30pm.

6) Running with many familiar friends Pete, Steve, Gina, Andrew, Connie, Jason, Joe, and everyone on the track be the end of the day.

7) Competition from Marc and then Megan got the Overall Finish challenging me to play a smart chess match.

8) Nearly missing my flight Friday out of Cincinnati because the bus to the airport changed its stop. I had just got a new iPhone the day before and my LYFT ap wasn’t working. I ran to Kentucky thinking in the meanwhile it would load which it didn’t. I called the local taxi company and they were on a 30 minute delay. It was literally 3:40 and my flight was leaving at 4:40. If I was lucky with traffic from Covington it might be a 20 minute drive. I paid a total stranger at a gas station, Mario, $40 to drive me. We had a great talk and got through security to the gate just in time. If I could make it to the start I was determined to have a strong race.

9) Winston, co-race director and the full team were super. All aspects of the race were covered. The awards were whimsical coconut guys made from a local artist.

10) I love plants and rocks. Winston and Chris surprised me with a tropical plant I kept at my aid station the full race for some positive vibes.

11) Running 153.49 miles. I was really thinking 155 as the go to number not being in a peak training segment, but I’m happy to move up to number 3 of 6 for Team USA for Austria 2019. The qualifying window will be open quite some time so I may have to improve on the distance.

12) Finishing. Sleep the few hours afterward feels like a million dollars.

13) Glad I got booted from the Hampton at 1pm and had an early evening flight. I went and explored St. Augustine on Sunday before back to work Monday. The oldest settlement of its kind in continental US dating back to 1565, I absolutely loved the history. Found an amazing vegan burrito at the Mayan restaurant and then a 30 minute massage next door. Definitely a must visit.

I’ll be on Lance McAlisters Sports Talk 700 WLW at 7:05pm est this evening - https://700wlw.iheart.com/featured/lance-mcalister/
