Joe Galope at Umstead 100 Endurance Run

Joe Galope is in the Umstead 100 mile endurance run in North Carolina today. The course is 8 12.5 mile loops. Honey is there crewing, pacing the last 3 loops and feeding WMRC headquarters updates. We will post here as reports come in.

Lap 1 2:05 12.5 miles
Lap 2 2:09 25 miles 4:14 total
Lap 3 2:13 37.5 miles 6:27 total (honey said it is getting warm, not a cloud in the sky)
Lap 4 50 miles 9:58 total (22nd place but that included 50 milers who started same time. Still feeling dang good)

Honey will start to pace him after lap 5. No more updates until Joe finishes.
