the high heat and humidity had richie cancel the 100k today. he substituted a 50 miler on the same course. instead of 26 loops of the park for the 100k, we ran only 21 loops for 50 miles. runners could also opt for the 50k distance(13 loops), but only the 50 mile race would be scored for the ny ultra grand prix series.
it was a very tough day out there. we had constant sun, no shade, high heat and humidity - until the late afternoon when clouds, thunder and eventually thunderstorms arrived.
i finished the 50 miler in 9:47. emmy finished the 50 miler in 9:10 - not only a pr for her, but she won the womens race!! rob switched over to the 50k and finished in 6:24.
full report and photos tomorrow.
