WMRC 8/3

Speedgoat recovery run. We are on for an easyish 5.89 mile run in the PMP on Wed am at 5:16am. Meet at the top lot of SQ PK DR.

Speedgoat and Zane met in a dark alley one night, Zane has not been heard from since.....Speedgoat is an ass kicker

Runner of the week: Jay Danek- Speedgoat 50K went down this weekend in Snowbird UT. Jay finished the race in 7:56. This run has 12,000 ft of climbing in the 31 miles. These are "Meltzer" miles which means that the race is probably about 34 miles. This was also the 501st day in a row that Jay had not missed running at least 4 miles. "The streak", like Bluedog, needs its own Facebook page because it is getting too big. Way to go Jay-In yellow below!
Travis McMaster (WMRC newbie) also did the Speedgoat 50k, he finished in 8:30 in his first official ultra, well done Travis, he said he wasn't even sore, mumbling about Hoka technology or something.

Special shout out to AZ runner, Dave James for his 100 mile Burning River trail win in Ohio over the weekend at the USATF National championships. Only at WMRC does a national championship only get you a runner up nomination. Well done Dave!

Wait...there was a rope?? Doesn't count. Blue Dog wins this week.

Bluedog said...

Now your talking Jeremy, Ropes? I don't need know stinking ropes. Don't need no apposable thumbs either. Don't need no repr, ooohh a ball......

Jay said...

I thought I could one up Blue Dog this week but it figures he found a pic of me holding onto a rope. Blue wins again.

Don't worry Jay. I'm taking up your ROW win with the executive committee. I've witnessed runs where Blue had a leash attached to his collar. Very similar to your deal. Blue didn't have a choice the leash was put on him. Just like you had no choice the rope was there. (BTW in the photo I don't see you "really" grabing it!!)After the my presentation I'm very confident your Runner of the Week will be reinstated.
