Wow!  Today was a busy day with the Cruisers’ W&OD Trail 45-Mile Ultramarathon Training Event going on ALL. DAY. LONG!  We got up at 3:30 to get ready and get the car packed to drive to the start of our run out in Purcellville, Virginia.


After a minor little snafu, we got going and arrived at the trail about 50 minutes late and immediately got started running in the 98% humidity.  I ran the first leg with our ultramarathoner… yep, we had one Cruiser go the full 45-miles; but I’ll get those details to you tomorrow when I write up a full recap.  I did spill the beans with a tweet yesterday after we finished, so if you follow me on twitter, you know who that ultramarathoner is.  If not, I’ll tell you tomorrow!

I’m celebrating today’s accomplishments by wearing one of my favorite shirts tonight!  You can’t see it, but the far left of the green line says, “26.2” and the gray line wraps all the way around and….


On the back it says, “ultra!”  How appropriate!  🙂


And now for a little R & R!  Compression socks and pizza… the perfect post long-run combination!


  • Questions:
  • What did you do today?
  • If you follow me on twitter, did I go overboard with the tweets?
  • What was the weather like today where you live?
