2007 Pittsfield Peaks Ultra Challenge

Debbie ran the Pittsfield Peaks trail race on Saturday. This was truly an epic. I had an ultra-marathon of my own, taking care of Shep for 12+ hours. It was non-stop feeding, diaper changing, photographing, crewing, and some playing. We had a blast while Deb romped in the woods. I’m working on some real stories about the race day, but here is the brief update.

Start of the Pittsfield Peaks Ultra Challenge

Deb ran one of her best ultras yet. The race was billed as 53 miles, but ended up being 55 or so, according to a few GPS toting runners. The course was extremely rugged and it took its toll on many of the runners. In spots it was tough to follow and several runners were lost in the woods…for a while. Leigh Schmitt was first man and Deb was first woman. Others have covered the race and I’ll follow up with more detail in the future.

Last night, we slept in a tent and dinner came out of our snack bag. Tonight, we have a real bed and dinner @eatfarewell was fantastic. I made progress towards replenishing the 4,852 calories that I burned at the #promiseland50k ++ #eatfarewell #vegan #tricycle washingtondc 🏃🏻🚴🏽 #promiseland50k was hot and hard. Both @trailrunningmom and I suffered badly. I told her that I'm "sticking with cycling" from now on! We didn't even check the results, which is fine because we are happy to just have finished. It was a beautiful course. It totaled 34 miles with 14,000 feet of elevation gain and loss. #ultrarunning #trailrunning #shenipsitstriders #teamhorstsports #virginia #blueridgemountains @trailrunningmom at #naturalbridgestatepark #bear Start of the @root66raceseries Junior Cat 3 #FatTireClassic #mountainbike #root66 Our kids have some classmates earning #taekwondo #tkd #blackbelt #bling at today's belt test. 🇰🇷🇺🇸 Small goalie.
