pineland farms trail challenge 50 mile update: rr and photos to follow

quick update before we get on the road for the drive home. i finished the 50 miles in 10:11 (unofficial). my 50k split was 5:42, a full hour faster than my finish time for the long island greenbelt trail 50k - go figure. the remaining 19 miles went a lot slower :(

but, emmy with a sub 9:40 finish won her age group and got the "jane deere" award for fastest master. and anthony finished in sub 9:30, for a huge pr and major breakthrough performance. wayne, who ran most of the race with anthony, had a sub 9:45 finish.

but even cooler, our team "rundangerously" (with emmy, anthony, wayne and me scoring) may have come in first place. the results haven't been posted yet - but can't wait to see if our ad hoc bunch of 50 milers came in first in the team competition!

we had to leave before meredith and eddie finished the 50 miler - but they were on the last 5 mile loop when we departed. also finishing the 50 miler were adam, carri (sp?) and sarah! and staci finished the 50k!

and major thanks to ian, the race director, and his crew of "trail monsters" for putting on such a great runner friendly event!

here is my race report w/links to race photos and results.
