Scott,

Superb report and an even better race performance. You are more than ready to rock in the TRT 100.

Rajeev

Scott,
I enjoyed running & talking with you at Silver State. I'm sure I will see you again on the trail before too long...if you come to Texas for a race let me know.

Great job with the blog - keep up the good work!

Scott

Well done Scott - Enjoyed the race report. Silver State and TRT used to be a local races for me - moved to AZ a few weeks after TRT last year. I ran Silver State last year as my last big race before the TRT 100 mile - about a 9:30 at SS translated to just under 23 hours at TRT. I am making the trip this summer for another TRT 100 mile - see you there.



what a great recap! good job on the 9:05.

2007-05-25T14:38:00.000-07:00

Congratulations! That sounds like a great run. I did the Bishop High Sierra 50 last weekend - first 50 and had a great time. You are an inspiration - Thank you and thank you for taking the time to blog - I learn a ton.

2007-05-25T10:54:00.000-07:00

Congrats on another great race. Perhaps you should hang up the photography business, seems like you are always right there close with the big boys! :)

I know what you mean about the pain description. The bloody mary analogy with tin foil is spot on!

2007-05-24T18:21:00.000-07:00

Thanks for the encouragement, everyone! Bay to Breakers posting coming soon (with some classic video). Chihping, I think our video samples may add 30 minutes to our times now!

Chihping, interesting math calculation! Jasper had intuitively shared the same thoughts - if I could stay that close to him at SS50, I should be able to get under 24 hours at TRT if all goes right. Seems like a good stretch goal.

BTW, for those who didn't catch it, that's Jean Pommier, recent WINNER of the Ohlone 50k!

2007-05-24T13:43:00.000-07:00

Hey, Scott, GREAT run-- in spite of your gear-nakedness, wrong turns and fall (remember, with the pics you get to substract 5-10 minutes from all your results). I think you're going to be in excellent shape for Tahoe, so stop stressing!

Now, I'm curious to see how BtoB went then next morning, but don't rush to replace this post...

2007-05-24T12:09:00.000-07:00

Good work Scott! Glad you were able to have such a great experience and such a good run. You rock! If you are going up to Tahoe to do any other training for TRT let me know... I definitely don't want to be "brought to my knees" in the 50!

2007-05-24T12:05:00.000-07:00

hey scott,

congrats on your race! i am so bummed that i had to miss that run. your pictures and video really gave me a sense of what to expect when i do do the race next year. thanks for an awesome recap. hope that fall wasn't too bad.

cheers!

2007-05-24T09:59:00.000-07:00

Wow Scott, you ran awesome! I too am motivated by some fears about TRT. I wish my race had gone as well as yours, but at least I'm only going 50M at TRT. I have run TRT 50K too, and I thought this course was much harder. Maybe I was better trained for that one though, who knows.
It was great to meet you. I'm sorry you missed the popsicles! ;) I look forward to seeing you at Tahoe, good luck with the rest of your training until then.

2007-05-24T09:21:00.000-07:00

Scott,
Way to get after it. And that is after some solid racing at Quicksilver! And you took a ton of pictures! You are going to have a blast at TRT! Great report!

2007-05-24T08:39:00.000-07:00

WOW! That's quite an amazing race that you were apart of. Great job and great race report on what sounds like a very hard race.

Oh yeah, I was checking out the PCTR message board and it looks like Mt. Diablo will sell out if you still are interested in running it.

2007-05-24T08:19:00.000-07:00

Scott, great report and congrats on a well run race. That course sounds very tough and I'll have to put it on a future calendar. I have to say that forgetting your entire bag at home tops my forgetting my waist-pack at Miwok this year. Way to overcome the mental letdown that must have been!

2007-05-24T07:10:00.000-07:00

Congrats on your strong performance on such a tough run even with all new gears! Thanks for another great report and video. I think I'll try video as well next time :-)

The course is pretty and challenging. Hope I have chance and strength to try it in future!

Is this your longest race report? I enjoyed reading it till finish. I guess the beauty of the course always inspires us a lot.

Btw, I did some math for you -
(9:05 / 7:49) x 20:18 = 23:35 < 24:00!! And I believe you'll definitely beat this number.

Best,

Chihping

2007-05-23T20:20:00.000-07:00

Congrats Scott! I love the pics and the little scenery video. I'm sure you are going to do well at Tahoe!

2007-05-23T19:31:00.000-07:00

Way to go, Scott. Congratulations. I think you're more than ready for TRT now!
It looks like Drake is also running TRT100.
Take care,
Pete

2007-05-23T18:19:00.000-07:00

The course looks tough! I doubt I could walk it let alone run it. You ran well!

2007-05-23T18:10:00.000-07:00

What a feat, Scott, congrats! Quite a good weekend for us, very impressed with Jasper's performance too.
You are surely ready for much more, it's going to be an interesting season with the coming 100-milers.
Take care and watch your...step!
Jean.

Thanks, Olga! I meant Hal's win at Old Pueblo, but somehow wrote Zane Grey. You would know - you were there!

2007-05-23T17:30:00.000-07:00

JC, I can't believe, with SO MUCH marking on the course we all got lost so many times! Runners really are weird, blind and often deaf too:)
You ran great! And yes, the most important part is that you felt you can go another 20! You'll be ready for TRT100, this double was an awesome trainer.
It was SO NICE to meet you, and yes, you are taller than I imagined. Scott Eppelman is a truly great guy, we took a ride to the start together (ok, I didn't shut up the whole way and he listened). It was a nice touch to see Helen and Norm there, people were fantastic (although I can live without that much fire roads on the course, may be next year?) and it was a blast of a day.
On another note - Hal didn't have a CR at Zane. Kyle won it, and no, no CR either:)
