Get Ready, Get Set, GO!

Get Ready, Get Set, GO!
Running Man is off and running this weekend
in North Carolina
at the Umstead 100 Miles Endurance Run.

He actually calls this fun.
It is a 100 mile run through Umstead State Park located
between Raleigh and Cary, NC.
The course is laid out in a 12.5 mile loop,
there are no alligators,
a rolling terrain,
an "ideal running surface"
hopefully, good weather
and a Friday night spaghetti supper for
runners and one crew member.
Sounds ideal to me.

No, I'm not the crew for this one.
Running man enlisted the help 
of his brother, once again.

Thank You, Tony!

 The race begins at 6 am and has to be
completed in 30 hours.
It does look nicer than the swamp.

He's trained hard, once again,
and is ready to get out there an meet his personal goals.

And what does he find at the end?

Ahh, the belt buckle.

We know you can do it.
Keep your mind focused on the prize.

(Ultra-marathoners are a whole different breed)

Until Next Time-


  1. I sure admire those who run and get that "high" they speak of. Good luck to Running Man!
