Quick Update from Umstead 100-miler
I completed 5 laps, 62.5 miles - or just a hair over 100K. That is the farthest I've ever gone.
Umstead will give an official 50-mile finish to anyone who goes that far. My 50-mile split is a personal record, by about a half-hour.
Yesterday (Sunday) I was in a pretty bad way, with a fever, chills, stomach/gas problems, no appetite, and just generally miserable - not to mention sleep deprived. That kind of response, I understand, is not uncommon. In fact something similar happened after my first marathon in December 2006.
Full race report will be posted on Friday.
