The Train

Ran The Ghost Train Ultra yesterday as a tool for pacing and nutrition for my A Goal race, 24 HR NJ one day November 11th. This serves as a qualifier race for the USA long distance team.

Practiced keeping my pace steady and fueling every 3.5 miles. I only ate 8 Honey Stinger chomps, one half Gel, 3 small cups tailwind, 3 small butterfingers bites, 2 hard candies , 1 half cup coke during the 6.5 hours I was running

Officially stopped at 30 miles to be counted. I then took my number off and ran for another 10, to again practice mentally for the 24hr. Third , podium, female for that distance.

Fell once but not bad. Felt overall great. 

Up next BG KY State championship marathon Nov 6th

Empire State

Marathon number 115

Perfect overcast weather 50 degrees
Felt ready and slept well for a change
Started once again too slow, but once I saw I was in the lead picked it up

The best part was having a lead and behind bike lead the whole race. I felt very special 

Miles 14-18 yuk. Pit spot which significantly lowered my finish time a D I expended too much energy trying to get back on pace

Miles 20-26 grand. Kept a 710 steady and negative split the race!
Broke the tape which was thrilling 
Happiest to be done.

Felt strong. Ready for a 305 in November at KY state championship marathon on the 6th.

MO #115

You I raced MO St Charles as a b race prep for Syracuse NY Oct 9

Going back this fall to have all of my marathon state races be BQ's. 
MO was half trail half road
Lots of twists in the downtown area

Started in the lead pack on point a bit fast

Too fast by the 10k- so I eased a bit

Mikes 13-18 were gravel trail - yuck and flat. I love hillier courses

Paced with a gentleman to 18, legs on fire, felt dizzy again as I did in the half last weekend. I told myself suck it up and downed a honey stinger gel

Last 6 were off goal pace but steady 
4th women they carted me to the med text again, I was ok I'm 10 min
Blood work to turn into Inside Tracker this week!
Got to see good friends Cade Dennis and Glen!!
