This was my second year. Last year the weather was terrible. It rained and it was windy the whole time. Finished in 7h:32m.

This year, weather was PERFECT! 44 at the start, 60 for a high, and I missed my PR by 12 minutes

Oh well, still a good run.
Congrats! I think that to simply finish a 50k or longer distance, regardless of the time, is an accomplishment enough. If you can run a fast time that's lots of icing on the cake!

Thanks, but the icing on the cake was the bacon cheeseburger and 22oz Shiner Bock I had at Texas Roadhouse after the race.

It's days like that where my calories consumed minus the calories burned is a negative number so I feel like I earned it.

Managed to finish a 100 miler last year. 28 hours and 43 minutes- never hallucinated but did have a few odd moments. First Ultra of 2014 is four weeks out for GRT 50 miler

You are tougher and younger than me disconnected, congratulations! We did a 50 miler once a few years ago, and that might be enough, once.

Training now for the Bishop 50k in May with Skowinski-wife, and then the Speedgoat 50k in July with my brother. Sunday runs are around the 3 hour mark and slowly climbing.
