Re: Run 30 100 milers in a year

Hey there. This is Scott Brockmeier of run30hundreds.blogspot.com. I just wanted say that you shouldn't count me out yet. I had an injury in March that kept me out for a month but by the end of June I'll have 14 100 milers despite that time off. Got my 11th this past weekend and I'm still on track ...

She's making good progress... Days 2 and 3 went well. I hope the rain holds off and thankfully it's not crazy hot.

Here's a link to Twitter updates.

Re: Sulphur Spring 100 Race Report (my 1st 100)

Great job nailing your first 100 miler and not getting emotionally wrecked! With that discipline you can go anywhere, sir. Beautifully executed plan, excellent pacing throughout the whole race. :clap: :clap: Imagine how much time you'd shave off your finish time if you kept your aid station stops ev...

Day 1 in the books... Good morning everyone Day 1 went well. Rainy conditions were a factor throughout the day and made the rock beaches in the Tobermory area slippery. Thanks to Wanda and Manuel for sharing stories and laughter on the tails. Through the moto - slow & steady - we completed the 8...

Run 30 100 milers in a year

I've been meaning to add this here... Liz Bauer, 53, is planning on running 30 100 milers this year and breaking Monica Scholz' record of 25 100 milers run in 2010. Liz just finished her 15th 100 at the end of May. She kicked off the year with HURT100 and I think she's got Hardrock on her agenda as ...

Re: Heed vs Perpetuem for Ultra Races

Same here. When it comes to hydration, I run my races on water, Lavasalt tablets and the occasional other drink at aid stations like coconut water, ginger ale, coke, Heed/Gatorade/eLoad... if the spirit moves me. I used to drink Heed and eload and such, but in the last couple of years I've switched ...

Re: Question about Limberlost Challenge

Limberlost is my favourite course in the whole Ontario Ultra Series, so I'm biased. :) It's the most scenic and has the best mix of dirt, pine needle trail, single track trails rolling along some gorgeous lakes and forests. I can't think of a better place to run a trail race. If you look at the prev...

Re: Sulpher 50 mile finish

Good job, Chris!
It's not easy figuring out nutrition and salts in the hot weather and most people end up struggling. Niagara will definitely be a hot one, so drink lots and watch the salts and the food. Good luck!

Re: tortoise vs Vermont Heat Wave

Good job toughing it out in the heat, ken! You're building your heat tolerance and it's good training for the rest of the summer and the next weekend. Ottawa is going to be a scorcher for sure, but by then you should be better at handling the heat. Nutrition during hot weather is a tough one to figu...

More trails for your bucks. I think they should just call it the Fifty-something K. Every year it's a different distance and badly measured. :lol:

OK the waterproof stuff is actually "KT Tape Pro". I'm not sure if that means they aren't selling the old stuff. On the website ad they claim "7 days and still going" including showering etc. I never get more than a day out of the old stuff: http://www.kttape.com/" onclick="wind...

There is new kinesio-tape that is much more waterproof than the old stuff- maybe that will work better? Do you know the brand? Any links would be greatly appreciated.

No I don't really understand what you are trying to say. The smaller arch wraps around the base of the pinky. I start gluing the tape at the top and wrap it around the toe from outside towards the inside. I have KT. I need to order the tincture of benzoate. I have started practicing with the taping...

Still not too late to do some heat training. Turn those heaters on in the car, run with an extra layer, hit the sauna, run at noon. And repeat to yourself "this is good training... this is good training... this is good training... this is good training..." :lol:

We had a good run on friday night. The weather was great.
