Sand Rat Trail Race
The Sand Rat trail race was not what I wanted to do this morning. I've been sick the last couple of days so I just ran a steady pace and finished without trying to hurt myself. Even though I was a bit under the weather, I wanted to be able to wear my T-shirt. The victory was taken by Juraj (pronounced Euro) who runs with the trail nerds occasionally. Kyle Amos ran a good time. Our good buddy Caleb even got a rat!
I just checked the results from Arkansas Traveller 100 and it looks like all of our local runners finished! Congrats Rick, Gabe and Willie. Carey Smith of St. Louis also finished comfortably. Kyle and I were talking today about how weird it is when you know someone is running a 100 miler and you keep thinking about them throughout the day and into the night and when you wake up the next morning you hope they finished. My brother Cody's first 100 is next week at Heartland, where I'll be pacing and crewing along with Keith and Caleb. The last time I was at a 100 miler was Arkansas 2003 when I paced and crewed for Kyle along with his wife Stacey. I don't know when or if I'll ever do one myself , but I'm looking forward to the atmosphere of the 100 miler.
