Great advice.  I have been planning to hit either Humpback or Priest a few times over the next few months to get ready for MMTR.  And I'm really looking forward to Gibbet.  I love running First Landing with just a hint of salt water smell in the air.

 

Let me know if you end up trying out Hokas.  I have been reading about them all morning and have several concerns about them, especially durability.  If I run across a dealer who carries them, I'll try on a pair though.

My time was just under 4:35.  Actually, it was close to my best 50K time once you account for the distance being 31.9.  And since it was in the heat, I'm content with it.  Leaves room for improvement.

 

I learned more in that race than I have in a long time.  My pace really felt good.  I always run by feel and base my pace on my breaths per stride so the pace was right.  When the sun came out, my breathing wasn't labored...a couple of very distinct muscle groups cramped up on me from the soft gravel, and I had to slow down.  They're ones that I haven't thought to work out before so I can fix that.  Also, I had a little sample of Amino Vital that I added to my drink around mile 27.  It tasted terrible, but I noticed immediate results every time I took a sip!  Definitely worth some experimentation.

 

One other thing...don't start out a race, even in the heat, with a frozen water bottle.  Takes a little too long to thaw out.  ;)

 

I think you did amazing considering you just came off of a 100.  You're really starting to hit your ultra stride.  You're going to tear it up at Gibbet!!!

Hey Martha;

 

Are you excited about Vermont?  I may see you up there. I will be crew/pacing Caroline Williams.  Let me know if you need anything.  I am sure I will see you at some of the aid stations and most importantly, I will see you and your buckle at the finish line.

 

Run Happy
