Happy training, 



  1. 31 miles completed today on the W&OD!!
    Special thanks to Holly for the 4 amazing trail-side assistance stations. She had everything, so it was so much more than a water stop.
    Thanks to Mark for our last refreshment stop.
    Thanks to Mai-Ann and Grayson for the 2 cheering stations.
    You guys are Wonderful!!!!!

  2. You guys were awesome! In 2010 you and George did the 50K in 6:45:34 and 6:45:35, and Mark did it in 6:12:37. So, I think you said that today you did the 31.069 miles in somewhere around 6:10:00. That means that not only did you PR by almost 35 minutes on a training run, but that you also hold the Rogue Racers 50K record! Rock on Pauls! :-)

  3. That's awesome! I'm coming after that 50k record. In maybe 2 to 5 years. 6 hours and 10 minutes of running takes some serious physical and mental toughness. Great job.

  4. Who's in for some FFX track tonight?

  5. Great job Pauls on your 31 miler!! WOO HOO!!
    My goodness what will be your longest run for this 100K?? is this it?

    I am in for track tonight Justin.
    See you there?

  6. Hannah and I will be there

  7. I'm in for track tonight. See you all tonight.

  8. I'll be there tonight!
