"The dog days are over
The dog days are done
The horses are coming so you better run
Run fast for your mother run fast for your father
Run for your children for your sisters and brothers
Leave all your love and your longing behind you
Can't carry it with you if you want to survive
The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses
Cuz here they come"
|keeping up with Jesse Scott and Mark Robillard for a while was tough but it really seemed to work out any kinks I had. Another surprise of the day, faster is sometimes easier.|
Some side notes-
~The above links are those of fellow runners recaps.
~Mind the Ducks results and links for a huge amount of photos!!
~I ate Salt Potatoes which are a Rochester Specialty. Basically little white potatoes boiled in salt water although one would think there is some magic in the mix. I also ate blue corn tortilla chips, apple sauce and chia seeds, gummy worms, gummy bears, sweedish fish, turkey deli meat, a little hummus and lot and lots of Strawberry Lemonade nuun!
VIVOBAREFOOT COACHING CREW......I think my form changed.....accept for that really tired bit at the end!
Great job, my friend!!! It was awesome to meet you on your way up. Know that you always have a place to crash in the DC area!
Awesome job! What a cool event to be a part of. Can't wait to hear how the week of training went also.
I second MCM's response...great to meet you and if you pass through again, you have a place! You inspire me!
Awesome mileage for that race!! Congrats!
So proud of you!!!
Can't wait to talk to you about it.
In my currently uncertified opinion, I agree with your assessment that your form did change except for that bit at the end. Incredible mileage for a new running form, too.
Angie, Thanks for running for me. Reading that bit of your post actually made me a little teary; not in a bad way. I suppose I was just a little more proud of your achievement. Way to go.
One day we will run together. Promise! Congratulations Mate - fantastic run. I knew you could do it.
This race looks like a great event with fantastic people. It's amazing that you put in that many miles. Very inspiring. I hope you recover quickly.
Wow! 38.89 miles? Amazing!
That is such a cool race. And you are AMAZING! Being able to push yourself like that at the end and finish with almost 39 miles is incredible.
That race will be a tough one to follow.
Wow, I can't even imagine being on my feet running and walking for that long! You are awesome... congrats!
Wow you more than doubled your expectations! Amazing work, well done :-)
You rock, girl! I was so proud watching you push your limits! I'm glad your recovery went so well too. Mine was fine this year but last year I was more of a train wreck so I hope I didn't scare you.
Fabulous Job A!!!!! I loved how you went to the tutu/barefoot to tutuless and neos! But yeah, something has to give if you want to finish and now that you're planning to do this again it's all about finding the tricky balance! Form.and ALL, looks amazing!!!! Loved the song references and the description. 38 effing miles is a monstrosity and you're an animal to just whip them out after a busy week away from home. Total amazingness!!!! (just read this http://www.chrismcdougall.com/blog/2011/05/best-new-running-accessory/ and thought of you!)
Congratulations! You did awesome:)
Nice work Ms. Bee
Holy smokes! Well done!
Way to go girl. It sound like you had an awesome time. It looked like it would be fun to do. Congrats on all those miles you got in. Loved the tutu.
Great run, well done! I absolutely love circuit races. That's what we call them here in South Africa. I've done 12 hour, 24 hour, 48 hour and 6 day circuit races. I've got some planned in the next few years as well.
What a great event. I thought about Katie too and it made me smile to think of mother's sacrificing all they can for their children. How great to meet the Robillards. What a perfect end to a great week. I sure wish that I could attend one of your clinics. I need to work on downhill form. Do you have any tips for me? I ran a marathon this last weekend and followed your fueling tips. It worked like a charm as did the Nuun. I am officially a Nuun snob.
Great job! What a fun experience.
you were great Ms. Bee, a total natural. hope to see you again one day...
How cool that you were there. One of my friends from grad school ran it with his wife. On the video they show up at 1:54 - 2:01. :) I'm glad your recovery went well!
Wow!! Great job! Sounds like a lot of fun too!
Angie this sounded amazing! I love your effort. I love your tutu. I love how you surprised yourself. Friends are wonderful.
All I can say is "Wow!" I love everything about this. Those shoes look great (even though I'm still refusing to put on any shoes -- and don't yet have to -- but know that I'll have to pick some out some time.) I'll be looking for the longer review.
This whole post put a longing in me, but a longing for something I'm so far away from.
I'm going to think about you running round and round and your statement "I didn't know I had that in me. Any of it." when I go through my black sash test on June 10th.
Angie... YOu never cease to inspire and impress!!! I hope I get to meet you one day!(mamarunsbarefoot-I lost my blog :( )
I'm with mamarunsbarefoot! What an awesome accomplishment and would love to meet you in person some day! Love that video. You looked so strong coming through the finish line. You rocked the FIYAH, girl!!!!
38.89 miles.... AWESOME!! Great Job Angie! Although I'm sure New York was wonderful, there is no place like home in Des Moines! ;)
