Had a great time at the Oxbow Ultra today. Won 1st Place in the Men's 40lb Ruck race. This was Laura's first time running the Oxbow, she did an amazing job conquering the mountain.
Had a great time on the trails at the Dirt Circuit. My legs were not fully recovered from the Yeti 100 two weeks ago. I treated this as a long training run to mainly focus on nutrition during the event. My nutrition plan seemed to work perfect the whole event. I used tailwind the entire day and supplemented with the aid stations. #trailrunning#altra#tailwind#fenix3
I would like to start with thanking Jason Green and all the volunteers for the hard work that went into making the Yeti 100 Mile Endurance Run such an incredible event. Thank you to my awesome wife and son and friends who came out to help crew. Laura Robinson Vance, Damian Vance, Gail Murray Collin Cornette. I have been on this trail hundreds of times over the years, but this time it was a brand new experience. It was great to see so many amazing people out there pushing so hard towards a common goal. It was truly inspiring.
I went into this race with a nutrition plan that I immediately threw out the window. This is turning into a recurring theme for every long event I do. I ended up DNFing at 50 miles in Damascus. I continue to learn just how important nutrition is in an ultra event like this. It was a great learning experience and my first attempt at the 100 mile distance. I will absolutely be back next year and conquer this distance. #trailrun#yeti100#tailwind#ultrarunning#altra#fenix3
Was a very hot day going up to White Top and back for a long training run for the #yeti100
