I really love reading articles that has lots of knowledge to impart. I admire those writers who share the best of their knowledge in writing such articles. Keep up the good work and continue inspiring readers.Thank you so much.

Congrats, Travis!

I am getting a steady rise of new readers, but it's hard to say exactly where it comes from. We got a big boost from the Forbes award in late 2005, and any time we have a lot of bloggers link to a story we get a good jump. I'm sure the TRM magazine is helping.

I do have more people come up and say "hi" at the races, which is nice. It's always great to meet new trail runners.

Keep on running!

This is a great blog, keep it up. I ran my first ultra 2 weeks ago and in the race packet was Trail Runner Mag and you were in there in the "runners to know" section. Have you noticed an increase in traffic here since it mentioned your blog address?

I'm pasting this from an e-mail from the RD's to give kudos to the volunteers and race sponsors:

Thank You, Thank You,
We would like to thank all the wonderful volunteers who gave up their Saturday to help make the race a success! Thank you to Stan Jensen, Ken Reed, Jim Pommier, Kristina Irvin, Mark Seaman, Cammie Dingwell, Jeff Jones, Brie Reybine, Lee Blaine, Marianne Paulson, Bob McPhail, Bryan Wyatt, Mike Webb, Georgia Gibbon, Mark Magers, and Mike Mahone! Thank you all so much!

We definitely also want to thank Steve Jaber, who organized the race for the past 7 years, for helping out again this year with a large portion of the planning and work in order to make the handover to the new race directors as smooth as possible. Thank you Steve!

Thank you also to BAUR -- Bay Area Ultra Runners (www.baur.us/) for sponsoring the race. Check out their website if you wonder why your award has a donkey logo!

Special thanks to Gillian Robinson and Don Lundell of ZombieRunner (www.zombierunner.com/) who provided the excellent goodie bags as well as the Gu2o energy replacement drink. Check out their website for all kinds of cool stuff!

We also want to thank Chrissy Weiss of Dirty Girl Gaiters (www.dirtygirlgaiters.com) for her sponsorship. Hopefully the new gaiters will inspire everyone to get out on the trails and give your body a rest after all that road running!

We want to thank Cliff Bar (www.clifbar.com) who generously donated the Cliff Shots and Cliff Bars, as well as a Cliff log banner that made an excellent wind stop, helping to keep some of the volunteers a little warmer.

And thank you also to All Sport Running (www.allsportrunning.com) and The Schedule (www.theschedule.com) who apparently placed ads for the race on TV the night before the race. Definitely well worth the $25 bucks we paid them to list the race on their website.

Scott I can only agree with all the complements - once again an excellent race report! And a very impressive finishing...I definately can say that given you did 50k in more than 1 minute faster than my first (and therefore PR) road marathon time a few weeks ago...ok ok you were nearly 2 minutes faster but not quite :-)

Now I really don't have any excuses anymore to delay hitting the hills in order to attempt my first trail marathon later this year...given that most of my training runs are on trails and I don't really like the road much (but then I had to try and make it a bit easier first time round for me).

Congratulations all round once again!

Mick (UK)

2006-04-26T10:02:00.000-07:00

I am sincerely flattered by all your positive feedback, guys. Thanks for letting me know! If you keep reading, I'll keep running/writing and keeping it positive.

I completely agree with Jennifer about doing the "un-ordinary". I continue to be most inspired by the runners attempting their first marathon/ultra/trail run/etc. Just doing one is incredibly courageous, and helps keep your optimism front and center.

For Eric - nice job on the 50-miler! I hope law school is going well. If you can get through 50 miles, you can get through year one. ;-)

Thanks again,

SD

Scott, I really enjoy your blog. Congrats on a PR, and right after Boston, that's fine work. Keep up the good work, both on the trail and on the blog. :)

2006-04-25T19:57:00.000-07:00

Hey hey, I made runtrails! All I know is that when I dropped, Chikara and Scott were alone at the front. Even though I had no right attempting 50 that day, the camaraderie of the front runners made it worth it(even if there was some trash talking. "Yeah, I puked the last 13 hours of Badwater" indeed.)

good times, good times,
Eric Blumenau

2006-04-25T18:48:00.000-07:00

Scott, your blog is one of the best out there. You put me[and most of us probably] to shame with your constant participation and racing. Your race reports are thorough and excellent reads, and I almost feel as though I am there with you on many of them. You really are living...and it helps the rest of us folks realize that, even if we cannot race and travel constantly like you, we can take some baby steps too...to do the un-ordinary. One trip to a destination race. One goal fantasy race. I think you could market your site to some sponsors if you so desired. The content is great, updated frequently, and with a lot of visitors. Anyway you slice it, you are providing content that a great many of us are enjoying above all that other crap on the internet. Thank you.
