Tomorrow I toe the line for my first and only ultra marathon of 2018, Run Rabbit Run 100 in Steamboat. Three years ago I ran exceptionally well here, on account of both my time and pace (20:12, 3rd overall) and the seven-year gap from my previous 100-miler, Leadville in 2008.
Training data would suggest that I’m in better shape this year, much thanks to the coaching of David Roche, so I’m optimistic that I can run at least as well as I did in 2015. It’s a stronger field this year, however, so an equal or faster time will not necessarily translate into the same place.
Amanda and my parents will be crewing me, and possibly posting some photos on my Instagram feed. You can also track the race live at UltraSignup. The race starts at 12 pm MDT. My bib number is #83.
Hope it went well enough in the heat, this week’s been hot here on the front range.
Andrew finished in the top 10 (tied for 7th place) in 21:18.
Way to go Andrew!
