Just a quick update for those of you interested . . .

Basically, I wilted like grass clipping on hot blacktop.  My first DNF in my running life.  I was done by mile 35, but finished 50 only thanks to a whole bunch of great RMEC members who came out and kept me moving forward. 

Got really good at the "death march" . . . . more later


  1. No worries Frank. You picked a really hard day to try it.
    You should sign up for Umstead 100 for next year!
    That'll give you some time to train for it. I know you would be able to finish it.

  2. Frank, I am so impressed with you completing 50!! It is so hot and the sun has been so bright. I am glad you are alive! We were thinking about you. Can't wait to hear the report.

  3. Hey there is no such thing as a DNF in a race that you invented... seems to me that you won the 50 mile division. Anyway, DNF is always better than DNS.

    Congrats my friend.

  4. great job to you for finishing 50!! I have never been past 50k! ( I'm running 42 next friday night-- so we'll see how that goes!)

    and death marching is NOT fun!! but seriously 50 miles is a STELLAR distance to cover!!!
