Wasatch 100 – 2009 8

The Wasatch 100 dished out some serious heat but it didn’t effect Meltzer or Roes as those two both broke the old course record. Rose crossed the finish line in 18:30 and Meltzer in 19:12, amazing times for the two top dogs of the day. On the woman’s side Besty Nye and Mandy Hosford both finished under the Cheetah time of 24 hours with course records, well done ladies! 2009 Wasatch 100 results.

Great job Wasatch Speed Goats ! We had five runners in the field, Dave Hunt age 50 finished his 6th Cheetah, amazing! Other goats were my favorite rival Tom Remekes, Jim Skaggs and super Nannie Jodie Chase who traveled from Phoenix to post a Cougar “under 30 hour” finish. I was out to run a PB at Wasatch while the splits were right on until the melt down after Millcreek, nothing like a little nap in the woods to get it back together. Once I left Pole Line Pass I  smoked the last 20 miles to finish in a PB of 27:19..Time to recover and get ready for the Inaugural Oil City 100.


Lake Erie Endurance Swim Record – Shattered 4

Long time college friend Randall Mcelwain set his sights on a endurance swim across Lake Erie, he trained all summer and was determined to take down the record of 11:53 from Long Point to Freeport Beach, Pa. Randy sent me an e-mail asking for some endurance nutrition ideals, I mentioned the EFS Liquid Shot by First Endurance, this will keep your electrolytes in line and deliver even energy througout the swim.

I am the new Long Point, OT to Freeport Beach , PA record holder with a time of 11:23. The record was broken by exactly 30 minutes with the former holder there to witness. The swim was great except for the 2-4 foot waives the entire crossing.

Hey, the First Endurance EFS Liquid Shot was great.  I took it on the hour and my strength was did not waiver the entire swim.  Not a single cramp in my Arms and Shoulders.

Thanks for the advice!
