The 2010 North Face 50K Endurance Challenge Championships & Half Marathon Next Day

The 2010 North Face 50K Endurance Challenge Championships & Half Marathon Next Day

Seriously?! Yes, I was the only person at the 2010  North Face Endurance Challenge Championships to run both the 50km race, then come back the next day and run the Half Marathon!oh, I got to meet Dean Karnazes too!

December 4, 2010 – 50Km Race Report: Finished the hardest 32 miles race I've ever attempted with 13,406 feet of elevation change (equivalent of running 45 miles on flat road) in 7 hours 20 minutes. The North Face Endurance Challenge 50k Championships in San Francisco. Hard but nice running through the Redwood forests. Questionable in whether I'll attempt the Half Marathon tomorrow. I'll be the only person to have ever attempted races on both days. So sore already but will finish strong. 6,500 more feet to climb and decend. Bring it!

December 5, 2010 North Face Endurance Challenge Day 2; 1/2 Marathon

Day 2 Report The North Face Endurance Challenge Half Marathon Day 2 14.0 miles Finished 46 miles of the hardest, hilliest races in the last 24 hours. A '50km & Half Marathon' on consecutive days. 19,000 feet elevation change (like running 65 flat miles in 2 days). Every muscle in leg hurts. Today was race number 46 for the year, and 1,910 miles run in 2010:) Now flying 11 hours back to England. Not fun.
