Rocky Rac. soonFebruary 4, 2010
I’m on my way to Huntsville State Park, near Houston, to put my perfect lifetime record in Texas ultramarathons (previous races: Houston Ultra Event Weekend 100K and Sunmart 50) on the line at the Rocky Raccoon 100. I’ll be sharing the trails with several hundred other runners (split between the 100-mile and 50-mile races), including my pacers John Reynolds and Paul Terranova (Meredith’s husband) and top female competitors Connie Gardner, Jamie Donaldson, and Anita Ortiz. I haven’t met any of those five except for Connie, so that will be interesting.
