Girlie, congrats to you and SR! The comments are valid and obvious, so I won't join in, yet I was just talking about you to Mike at HR100 and how I really like you and relate - it's much more about joy...long story, but I am just happy I got to "know" you:)

Although I think Pam Reed is amazing in a lot of ways, I also think that she struggles with her eating disorder more than she lets on (says that she thinks having been anorexic has benefited her ultra running because it taught her to run on empty, essentially). Keep that in mind when you read it, SLG. Just my two cents.

In retrospect and reading what all you guys are saying, it seems like it was probably a combination of starting too fast and getting hungry and thirsty that really slowed me down at the end. Learning how to get the strength to do 50k's well is a fascinating subject to me. Thanks for all of your advice.
Heather, I've not heard of Pam Reed's The Extra Mile. I'd love it if you could send it to me! You can reach me at sealegsgirlblog@gmail.com.

Congrats on third, Sea Legs! You should be proud of this fact. Sounds like you put your heart into the race and raced hard!

Whatever food/liquid calories you fancy, 200-250 kcal/per hour in shorter events (50km and such), more than that in longer events, taken in even, steady, roughly continuous dosages. The experiment of seeing what kinds of calories your body will digest whilst running is almost as challenging as training one's body to run a long ways. (I am so far not an expert at either. :)

I hope you guys enjoy the rest of your time in California. Congrats also to SR for his win!

Oh and I came back -- I forget if I asked, have you read Pam Reed's "The Extra Mile" before? I can send it to you if you want.

I'd say you did pretty darn well!!! ;-)

I guess the good thing is now you have more of an idea where to focus your efforts before and during an ultra. Don't write off a 100-miler just yet! I think if anyone can do it, you can.

Hope you're still enjoying your vacation!

Keep in mind that you can't rely on nutrition just from the night before and the day-of for a race that long. Part of training for a race is also eating consistently well ALL of the time. Also, I can imagine that breast feeding during an ultra creates a huge energy depletion. You did well, though!

You may have simply gone out too fast. Dunno. Good job though!

They do say nutrition is a huge part of ultra events...
I'm sure it's a trial and error for a lot of people starting...
You have the strength, now it's probably the experience.

Good race!
