It’s been a while since I’ve done some odds on a race, but since I’m going and the field is fairly thick up front, we’ll take a crack at this one.   I know most in the field as friends, so it’ll be easy right? What I know so far. Ian Sharman,  12:44 Tony K, 13:16 Hal Koerner, 13:27 Me…14:27 Bill Fanselow was coming, he’s done now, probably around 15:30 or less.  Mike Wolfe was coming too, around 16 ish. Liza Howard took the women’s record down to 15:33. Jurek Dropped, Zach Dropped ( I think, but not sure) That’s all I got now, full results will come later.  The Men: 1.  Anton Krupicka  2-1.  It wouldn’t be right to put Anton anywhere else.  Apparently he’s been running strong, has run here before around 13:30.  That’s enough for me to give him the nod.  100 mile is not his “best” distance, [...]

That’s 165.70 in miles!  The Jerker finally has rebounded taking “Fat Boy’s” american 24 hour record down, and Rae Clark’s “absolute american record”…whatever that means. !  We’ve been waiting for Scott to do something big….well, he did something big!   Hell of a run Scott!  Congrats on an incredible effort!  Maybe we’ll see you back at UTMB so we can all redeem ourselves there too.   I think he’s pretty psyched…well deserved my man!
