Kingdom Swim and Vermont 88.6

I will be happy to write about my fairly disasterous 10 mile swim race tomorrow but since my left arm is in a splint secondary to thumb tendonitis from swimming too far I will keep it short and sweet. I would like to give a BIG shout out to Danny for completing 88.6 miles of the grueling Vermont 100 trail race. Who suggested 100 miles anyway? 88.6 is enough of a sufferfest if I do say so myself. He claims he is done with the 100 mile challenge but I know he will be back for more...I mean who can resist trail running in the dark up and down these little piss ant hills which go on forever and ever and start to feel like mountains after you have lost eccentric control of your quads and are puking up Ramen noodles (more about that later) just to shuffle your hurting body along at a blazing 20 minute/mile pace?

  1. 88.6 miles is still a long, long way to run. Congrats on getting that far! You'll have to tell us all about it at some point. In the meantime, why not skip the Manchester Marathon and come run the Stonecat 50 with me? Fifty is half of a hundred, right? And, much, much shorter than 88!
