Meltzer at San Diego 100 5


OK, well I guess we all predicted a little lower than I ran. 17:46 was well over an hour slower than the slowest prediction. What can I say, it was good enough to win it for now. The course was deceptively harder than we thought. The highest GPS reading we got was 12,700 in climbing. Extremely minimal compared to most ultra 100s. Lots of soft sand, with a cupped trail making it hard to really run fast. The fire roads were the most technical parts, the 90 degree temp made it a little slower, with a breeze decieving us with hydration. Sound like whining……no way, just another day at the office, and I ‘m sure glad to be home on the couch right now. I will say the record is somewhat soft and very much breakable by at least an hour. Something to possibly shoot for in the future. Thanks for all the predictions! It is super cool to sit here now and read all this.
Javelina is a pancake, if you don’t run every step, it feels like standing still. There is about 1200″ vert per loop. Some up and downs in the middly make up for it. BAAAHHHHHHH! Wahsatchspeedgoat

    I can’t believe how low I predicted! Yes, it was decieving to think of SD as an easy course. Congrats. Too bad you had to hit the road soon after – we did go drinking and practiced shots as I promised:)
