Marathon Training & Racing from
Joe Bowman
All 50 States & DC under 3:00
WOW, what an amazing trail run!  And tough, tough,
tough...check out the
elevation chart.  That's over 7,000 ft of
climb in a 50K.  Dink Taylor who was second place overall in
2006 (4:58) and is the current race director of the most
prestigious 50K trail race in Alabama (
Mountain Mist) says
that's a ton.  My calves believe it...they quit working at 22
miles.  Did I mention the elevation chart...
look what I still had soaked shoes!  Speaking of getting wet, the creeks
were bursting due to the rain on race day and the rain a
couple of days before, but that looks like a smile on my face
doesn't it.  It was a blast!  And the whole course was
absolutely gorgeous!  
You gotta do this race.
