here are a few photos from the 24 hour around the lake ultra, in westfield, massachusetts. i'll post a race report tomorrow. here is the short version: i ran 19 laps for 60.04 miles in about 17.5 hours. emmy ran 16 laps for 50.56 miles. we didn't stay for the entire 24 hours because emmy had to pick her son up from the airport (he returned home from a trip to guatemala) and i wanted to get a little rest before the nyc half marathon tomorrow!
a view of race staging area from across the lake.
scenic views of the lake along the course.
another beautiful vista.
downside of the course - PAVEMENT!
coming up to the second aid station.
at the start.
we had a less than prime location for our gear as the result of our late arrival (thanks to terrible friday afternoon traffic conditions)!
