I like to run. I've learned that it really isn't about where you're going, it's about the getting there - the how, the why, the who with. This blog is just a little repository for my thoughts along the way; the setbacks, the lessons learned, and the occasional triumph.

Lookout Mountain 100K Results

I'm still working on my Race Report, but for those of you who may be wondering...

I finished! I was 28th out of 37 finishers. There were 65 runners registered and 59 or 60 people who started the race. So that means there were, maybe, 22 or 23 DNFs from the field (38%!). Temperatures were in the upper 50s all day, but the rain came and went, and was often heavy. My official time was 16 hours, 3 minutes and 31 seconds, and I finished just a few minutes before midnight.

I thoroughly enjoyed (almost) every single minute of it, and I'll have the whole story up in another day or two!

Have a happy holiday, everyone! I hope you're all able to enjoy the time with friends and family or anyone else who loves you as much as you love them.

I was thinking about you all Saturday evening -- hoping that you were doing all right and had finished. When I saw your name on the results, I was so friggin' happy! Congratulations on gutting it out -- it was tough out there.

Oh, and thanks for rescuing me -- who knows how long I would have been wandering out there (GOING THE WRONG WAY) if you hadn't...

Merry Christmas! (Maybe I'll see you at McNaughton in April...)
