Hey, Scott... Great write up... really enjoyed the commentary, though you made it sound "way too easy!"

If you're interested in another little diversion, check out the Deepwater 50 Mile race that's part of Adventure Sports Week. It's going to be in Coeur d' Alene, Idaho, June 13... great course, amazing scenery, great swag... we'd love to see you there! (We think Dean is coming as well)

We're expecting our own daughter June 9, so congrats again!

I enjoy reading your blog and the detailed reports and pictures from your races.

As to fatherhood, I'm a bit of a rookie too with a 10 month old daughter (Amelia). The best suggestion I have is to get a Chariot jogger! My daughter loves it and I love the great quad strength I get from pushing her around!

Gah, bummer about the theft! But, it sounds like a great race... Hey any time you get passed by Dean is a great race :) Of course, I guess it would be better not to get passed by him, but I digress ;)

Way to keep the positive attitude.

Scott-Thanks for posting the picture on the bridge with my dad and his friends, (Don Foster) I love crewing that race every year and really enjoyed your blog!

Scott -
Glad to see you had such a positive attitude considering the theft!! Sorry to hear that. It's so wonderful that you were taken care of quickly with the clothes. Thanks for the great race report!

2006-04-05T07:38:00.000-07:00

Nice job on the PR for the 50k and the new one on the way. I have my first ultra coming up on April 15th. It's good to read about others races to try to work out a stategy for myself. Keep up the great work!

Great race report Scott and sorry about the car but congrats on the new baby.

Best advise on new babies is just like getting advise on running your first ultra. It's nice to be prepared but ultimately you have to go through it yourself. I will say this, try and get some sleep now while you can.

Thanks for the great race review Scott, and especially the photos. I just posted my own write up if you want the rookie perspective. Congrats on your new "dad" status, that's great!

Great recap :)

Grand Slam Breakfast?! you are a stronger man than i. Also, i am amazed that you can remember so many details of a race. really. amazed.

2006-04-04T11:09:00.000-07:00

Thanks everybody for your good words. I agree with Donald - my good news and good race so far outweighs the theft, it's really not even bothering me that much. Insurance covered everything, so I got a nice little shopping spree out of it too!

And to all you daddys out there, I welcome any and all tips, daddy blogs, pearls of wisdom, etc. I am definitely the n00b on this front!

Thanks again you guys,

SD

Scott:

So let me get this straight. You clocked a 50k PR on the way, and somehow TOOK PHOTOS ALONG THE WAY?!? I think you're holding back. ;-)

Your blog continues to be quite meaty with interesting interviews, race recaps, and product updates. Also, the photos (from AR and elsewhere) really add a ton to the stories. Thanks for taking the time to share and motivate.

2006-04-04T02:42:00.000-07:00

Thanks for the great post Scott, especially the recap while your mind wandered. It's one of the things that has me hooked on running in the last few years, the chance to let the mind drift like that. Shame about the car. As I build up my miles and tweak my body away from that of a cyclist to one of a long distance runner (hopefully ultras one day) I'll keep visiting your blog for more great posts. Hopefully here in New Zealand there will be more events like the AR. It's slowly happening, thankfully.


Cheers!

Bummer about the broken in car! But a fantastic race report! Too bad I didn't get a chance to meet you though I meant to - you're too fast for me to still be around at the finish:) Next time...

2006-04-03T21:27:00.000-07:00

Wow, what a good news-bad news report! Luckily the good news things (a new baby, a good race, a positive outlook and a helpful community of runners) are far more important than the bad things (stolen property).

Excellent report - thanks.

2006-04-03T21:03:00.000-07:00

Scott,

I routinely look forward to your updates on your blog. Your blog was one of the first ones I came across when I first started running (last August) and was looking for information. Your personal recounts and the runners you interview have given me inspiration with every update!

I’m sorry to hear about your stolen items at the AR50. I hope the runners high you were on took you through the rage you must’ve felt when you saw your car.

At any rate, I thought I’d leave a note to let you know that your words are inspiring and you’ve made a difference in my young, but eager running life.

Good luck with your daughter. My wife and I celebrated my daughters first birthday last month. It’s such an amazing feeling. Take the best runners high and times it by 1000 and you’ll get a small glimpse of what being a “daddy” is like!

Thank you for everything!

A "newb"

sorry about the laptop. But from someone fighting IT-band issues, thanks for sharing and letting me "experience" the race through someone's eyes and legs until I can with my own.
