Finished 6th Place in 17:42:54 in Rocky Racoon 100, 1 minute and 21 seconds behind Kevin Lashley (Photo below) and 40 minutes faster than Long Haul 100 from 2 weeks ago. I pushed hard in the last loop sprinting to the finish but I had no idea anyone was right in front of me.

I had bonked at about mile forty earlier in the day and went about a mile and a half mostly walking, having miscalculated the heat on that segment and run out of all my liquids. I love warm weather but I think a humid 70 degrees may feel warmer than a sunny 80 in Florida two weeks ago at Long Haul 100. I was surprised so many runners, including myself got sunburn on are arms and faces. It was cloudy nearly the whole day and mostly in the trees. The Rocky Racoon really ought to be called the Rooty Racoon. I think I may have seen 5 rocks but all crossing a small stream. Roots on the other hand, there are hundreds. The small rolling hills and mud from the recent rains coupled with the humidity created enough challenge. That was tough running the 2 - one hundred mile races in 2 weeks. My legs were feeling tired after the first 25 mile loop. I was able to work my way from about 15-20 Place at mile 40-50, and catch a large number of runners in the second half of the race.

The hospitality was greatly appreciated and impressed by all the encouraging I heard banter back and forth from nearly every runner who was coherent to speak.

Dave Oakley was amazing in volunteering to crew for Kelly and I. Really enjoyed seeing Kelly giving 100%. She has a very tough mindset and couldn’t be prouder of all that she balances in her busy life between raising her amazing kids, working overtime for her students and having the energy to still tackle such an endeavor. Grateful for some of the really nice things that were said to me over the past 24 hours especially from a volunteer at the nature center aid station. That I will not forget.

I wore my Newton Gravity VIII Road shoes that come out tomorrow with Newton. They were amazing despite the mud and roots. I was really able to keep my strides efficient and even when I was tired keep moving forward. I wore one pair of shoes and one pair of Swiftwick socks the whole race.

I could really use a visit to Mr. Miyagi!
