24 Hour Ultra Marathon

VA 24 Hour Run For Cancer-Ultra Marathon

5 friends and I all tackled this Ultra and came away beat up...but happy with our experience.

(Jason, Susan, Lloyd, Kim, Brian (me) Kelly)

Jason = 63.75 miles
Susan = 52.5 miles
Lloyd = 52.5 miles
Kim = 52.5 miles
Kelly = 52.5 miles
*My wife = walked 7.5 miles (2 laps)

75 miles for me, total event time 20 hours, running time 17.5 hours 14 minute per mile pace. 9375 calories burned, @ mile 60 I was still turning laps at near 45 minutes, lap counter told me, "you look stronger now, then at lap 10..."  Then my feet left me...

Song stuck in my head for 75 miles "Made for you"

Warning ugly toe picture:

A full report will be posted soon.

Thank you to our outstanding race Director George Nelsen, Check the event page


  1. Nice RR! I told you during the race that you were getting stronger.

  2. Thanks Tony, that encouragement stuck with me all night....
