2009 nipmuck trail marathon: race photos and results

just back from the nipmuck trail marathon. it's been a long day - left the house at 5:15 am and came home at 5:15 pm. ran the marathon in 4:46:13 - the only bad decision of the day was to wear my lightweight trail shoes (new balance 840) instead of my old standby, the new balance 908's. other than that, it was a great day!

here is my race report.

here are the race results.

Nice report and photos....I finished just in front of you in 4:44. I was moving so slow from cramping, I'm surprised more people didn't catch me!
Good run!

Nice report and a great race. Myself and a few friends ran it last year as well, so we (3 of us) came back for more. We had one friend finish 9th and me and a buddy finished directly in front of you. I wouldn't say we were sprinting, but we hammered the last couple of miles feeling strong. In fact I felt a little guilty passing you so close to the finish.

Just a great race overall (I ran for the pizza and another log). Congrats again - Ray G
