i haven’t posted anything on here in quite some time, but thought i’d share some photos from last sunday’s Hunter S Thompson Fear and Loathing 50Kilos run through San Francisco.
last year, i trudged out the 50 miler. i had signed up for the 50M again; but, during mile 22, i just couldn’t see going that far on that day. my training quality and quantity really wasn’t there anyway. i made the cutoff at mile 25 and probably could have kept going (trudging again this year), but didn’t want to be late on the overall 10 hour cutoff. last year, i was over by eight minutes and i didn’t want to do that again…
funny part is that i was being hard on myself about dropping to the 50K and someone reminded me that it WAS STILL 31 miles! ok, i will acknowledge that – plus it was my second fastest 50K. still, it hurt a bit to drop down, but it was the right decision.
as i finalize my plans for 2017, the HST F&L 50 miler is on the list and i will be ready!
anyway, here are some of my favorite photos from the run.
