I don't kow where Double has been lately but he had a great race at the Ice Age Trail 50. I hope he will come back and give us all the details about it. Suffice to say that he was in the top five. Thumbs Up

It was a good run for me. I was pretty beat up after the 100k on 4/4. So much that simple running was a chore. About a week before, I was able to start feeling somewhat myself and planned for a conservative start at Ice Age. By 20 miles I was in 8th and I just kept grinding along, hoping others would come back to me. At 37, I got the indication that 3 runners were within 7 minutes and over the next 5.5 miles I caught those three. I then set sail the best I could to chase down 4th. Running as fast as I had all day, I got to within 100 yards of Joel, but he wouldn't crack. We hammered up hills and through the rocks, down washed out hillsides and through zig zags, but I couldn't close on him. Joel finished in 4th just 15 seconds out of 3rd and set a PR at Ice Age. I was just over a minute behind Joel for 5th.

Not my best Ice Age, but my most satisfying as a race and climbing off the ash pile.

I am now thinking of the Kettle Moraine 100 mile in three weeks again this year.

Thanks for asking, keep the faith.

Double

Very well done. And even better, now I know who you are. Smile

That is outstanding Double. It boggles my mind to imagine running 37 miles and then starting your "final sprint" with 13 miles to go. Exclamation

Great job on reading your body and being patient. Two things on which I need to improve.
