October/November running

It's been awhile since I've updated anything here.  October has been a busy month for running.  Heartland 100 was first.  Kansas may seem flat, but in the Flint Hills.. it has some hills.  When you're at 70 or more miles, those hills become big, steep hills.  It was great to be back in Kansas for another 100 miler finish.

The next weekend was Pumpkin Holler Hunnerd in Tahlequah, OK.  It's about an hour drive which made it really nice.  The course again was similar to Heartland, basically all gravel road.  But Tahlequah has much steeper climbs than Heartland.  Finish time was under 25 hours.  But it's great just to have a finish.

A successful back to back 100 mile finish.  Hopefully next year, I'll have back to back to back 100's.

November also brings some good running.  Again this year, I was a 5 hour pacer for the Route 66 marathon.  Included this year was a detour to the center of the universe (added .3 mile to 26.2).  Since it's beginning in 2006, I've ran this marathon every year.  It's great running Route 66 marathon.

Happy running out there!
