Just discovered your blog a couple of weeks ago. This race was my first trail run, and I had no idea how different it would be. I wisely chose to do it as a 9k. Well, this coming Sat is Pacifica again and I'm returning for a 30k scared as heck! (I've done Sequoia 20k, and Lake Chabot half in between at least). Anyways, thanks for your blog, and I'll introduce myself if I see you!

There's no such thing as "too old for ultras"! Just sign up and go! Remember, walking is completely acceptable - particularly on the Pacifica course. ;-)

My weekly mileage is about 50-60 miles per week. I do a 10-12 mile run on Wed morning, and go 15-25 miles each Saturday, both at a tempo pace. When my long runs get in the 25 mile range, I usually just sign up for a marathon but not go super-hard. It's just so much easier when there is food and water on the course. ;-)

I hope to see you out there at a 50k - be sure to stop by and let me know which one you're doing!

2007-02-08T11:04:00.000-08:00

I just a brief once over of your summary of the Pacifica 50K....I actually was contemplating doing it a few months ago as my first ultra....I have been running 27 years and am way over due to jump into the ultra world....when I have time I am going to read some more of your blogs....I think I can glean some valuable info to smooth my way into ultras from you.....you probably have this information somewhere on here but I am curious about how much your weekly mileage is and your long runs.



Soar, Soar, Soar! Burn, Burn, Burn!

Great seeing you on Saturday Scott. and thanks for the link. I was chatting with Cathy Morgan after spin class tonight and she told me you took a spill on the trail. Yes pictures would have been great! Well I'm glad you're not seriously hurt. Double that you're camera was not damaged. What'd the wife say when you came home bloody:)

Congratulations on 3rd place. Nicely done.

Scott,
I loved reading your race report - almost felt like I was there. Nice photos as well! Hope you're not too sore. I'd planned on Pacifica being my first ultra, but got sidelined with an injury. Now I'm shooting for either AR50 or Quicksilver 50K (or both, depending on how it goes). Hope to meet you at one of these runs - you've provided much inspiration.

2007-01-24T18:16:00.000-08:00

Like always, another great RR :) Congrats on the 3rd place! Sounds like a very challenging course on which you excelled. Looks like a bunch of us will be at Woodside in a few weeks. See you there!

Thanks Will, Sarah, and Michael for adding more details about the race. I'm glad to hear everyone had a good time!

Olga - great idea on the "blood sport" picture! I should have thought of that. Lord knows my sick mind would love to see it on other blogs. Unfortuately the miracles of Neosporin have reduced my scabs to unimpressive levels. I'll try/fall harder on the next one! ;-)

2007-01-24T10:04:00.000-08:00

Great report Scott! Congrats on such a strong finish, in spite of your rough fall. You inspire.

Another impressive runner out there Saturday was Robert Cervero, who completed the 50K and subsequently jumped on an airplane to a conference related to his international academic superstar life.

I'm really enjoying getting to know this close community of trail runners. Having someone like you to bring us all together is key. I just started running ~8 months ago, so I'm still in the puppy love stage. I'll be at a cycling team training camp during the Woodside race. Next trail race for me will be in New Zealand I hope in late February or early March.

What a glorious day, congratulations again! And where is the bloody picture, we need to see the suffer! :) Hope it heals up well, and jealous of your blissful run.



Well done as always Scott, both race & report. So...

2007-01-23T23:59:00.000-08:00

Well done as always Scott, both race & report. Sorry to read of your faceplant, I came close a few times on the final descent myself.

Great day...best part for me was pushing in 'Little Will' Baker-Robinson, as he crossed the 9K finish and I tailed off for the remainder of the 21k. It was awesome to see him get the win, following a second place finish the previous week at Angel Island. Very cool kid, can run uphill like a little whitetail, what a future both he and his like-talented brother have in this sport!

Thanks for having me leading off the summit, but truth be told I was third to 30K co-winner Ty Strange and eventual 21K second-place finisher Tim Lohrentz, who did a fantastic job of lead-blocking for me through the narrow two-way traffic zone.

See you at Woodside 17k, running my final race under 25k, with sights set on the ultra distance by May (Ohlone 50K).

Will G.

2007-01-23T23:06:00.000-08:00

Congrat to your strong performance! And thanks for another great report.

I have tried to avoid doing loops like Pacifica, but now I think I should give it a try given its scenic and technical trails.

I'll see you at Woodside (2/3). Guess you'll just walk out to the AS at your backyard ;-)

BTW, not sure if you're interested, but there is Fremont Fat Ass 50K this Sat (1/27).

Great race report, Scott. Your write ups reflect the positive atmosphere of the race perfectly! I hope your healing is coming along (and your not sticking to the sheets).

Michael -

My apologies. I had no idea you were crazy enough to start with a 50-miler! I corrected it above, and will see you at Quicksilver.

Cheers, SD

2007-01-23T21:09:00.000-08:00

Scott,

Excellent race report! It really was a nice run, with beautiful scenery to help pass the miles and hills by, and, as usual, PCTR did a great job. Although you eventually left me in the dust, it was great to talk/run with you during some of the long climbs and descents. Congratulations on 3rd place on such a hilly course.
Now its off to the local trails for some more training runs, which now hold a fresh new meaning and motivation thanks to a great race. Looking at your calendar, it appears we will meet again at Quicksilver for some MORE hills!

See you then!
Michael Kanning

P.S. It doesn't really matter, but I can't help but mention that I ran the 50 Mile at Helen Klein, not the 50K (I ran 9:25). So it's not like I cut 3 1/2 hours off a 50K PR on a course with 7000' more vertical feet!

2007-01-23T20:40:00.000-08:00

Scott,
Great story! as always.
I look forward seeing you at the Woodside run in next couple of weeks.

Also, noticed you are planning to run TRT this year. Will be happy to give you any info ypu may need re the 100M run, which I did last year.

Cheers
JF
