This week is all about the inaugural 100 mile trail run in Northern Ohio..the Burning River 100.
I am pacing my man, Mike to his first 100 mile race. We’ll cross the finish line in Cuyahoga Falls and then jog two miles back to his house. I’ll even let him shower before me…
Really looking forward to the race, and the experience. This is my first time on the “other side” as a pacer, and a aid station worker for a 100 miler. I talked to Wendy for some time tonight, she is pacing Gabe, who is going for his 2nd Ohio 100 miler of the year. So is Josh !
There are actually many others, who ran Mohican and are running Burning River. I think this might end up being a convenient 100 double for folks; hang onto that endurance honed for Mohican and use it up for the Burning River!!
It’s a good experience for all the northern Ohio ultra runners. Many others have commented on what a good community of runners we have, and I have to agree. It seems if an ultra runner is not running this event, they are volunteering somewhere out on the course.
I’m working Happy Days Aid Station Mile 65. This is great for me, because this is where I can pick up Mike at; this is the first place to pick up pacers. So, if you are pacing and picking up your runner here, please say hi to me; I’ll be the trail goddess among the other NEO Trail Runners at our aid station
