“I want to be thoroughly used up when I die.” – George Bernard Shaw Phew! I didn’t realize I could run that fast. This was the first race I can remember where I told myself going in, “Go all out & see what happens.” Realistically, if I pushed myself too …

This was my 2nd attempt at 50 miles. My goal was under 12 hours because that would qualify me for the Old Dominion 100 in June. I knew I could run it in under 12, but I wasn’t expecting to finish in under 9:40. Photos, video & course description.
A small, trail marathon in Greensboro, NC, the Triple Lakes Trail Race has 40-mile, marathon, half-marathon & relay options. All distances come fully equipped with tree roots. Be prepared to bite it.
