Rocky Rac. soon

February 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.

Here are a few pertinent links:
* iRunFar.com previews the race
* Karl Meltzer handicaps the field (he picks me and Jamie to win)
* EnduranceBuzz.com offers details on Karl’s picks
* Live results from edsresults.com!


  1. Good luck Greg! Remember everything I've taught you and you'll do wonderfully!PS. All your links in your post are broken…

  2. nevermind you fixed them in the 11 seconds it took for me to post a comment. :/

  3. Good luck. See you there!

  4. Allow me to be the first to congratulate you on your big win, Doogie! Still undefeated in Texas. That bid for the course record (if indeed that's what it was) only lasted 40 miles or so, but I hope you still consider it a successful run.

  5. Way to bust it man! Nice run!

  6. Great job, Greg!Now noone can say you can't run the 100M distance! Looking forward to your race report.
