The OD100 went well, like really well. A race report will follow (I need some sleep and will write later this week).
In brief, I ran a 16:52 for the overall victory and the fifth fastest time in the 32 OD history. The course was significantly more difficult than KM100, but not as tough as Grindstone 100. The weather was a huge factor as it started in the 70's with humidity in the 70pc range and peaked in the low 90's and 94pc humidity (according to weather.com).
Hot and humid. I persevered and kept running- like a lot of running. I estimate I walked about 7 miles of what I would label non-runnable terrain and ran the other 93. Seriously, other than the 7miles of walking, about 1min at around 10 aid stations, and 15 bathroom breaks (yes, my colon did not want anything sloshing around in that hot weather- thank god for leaves!), I ran and ran.
Thank you guys for giving me motivation and strength- especially you Dave- "total domination" was my mental motto of the day- that and "keep running because I want to finish in the light"- no headlamp! Again, thanks for the mental strength and boost. I will send a race report and pictures as the week unfolds.
