happy to report that i'm back to running ultras! sybil was my first ultra in 2 years (and my last ultra back in 2012) before succumbing to chronic compartment syndrome - which is now, thankfully, a distant memory. but the really big new was the retirement of the race directors and the possibility that the 36th edition of this historic event may, in fact, be its :(
i didn't have my camera at the start, so the first two photos are eliots - who not only took photos and manned the 10 mile aid station w/his son - but is running the lake waramug 50 miler on sunday! way to go eliot :D
as for my return... i didn't break 5 hours (5:11:42) - but was more than pleases (ecstatic, actually) to have it in the books. and getting a 3rd in my age group was icing on the cake :D
here is my race report.
here are the race results from taconic roadrunners.
here are the rest of my photos (post-race) up on facebook.
