Old Goat 50 Mile race - my hubby's report
Thursday, March 29, 2012
I watched Paul start the race on Saturday at 6:30 am, saw him once during the day at around 21 miles, and then didn't see him again until around 6:30 pm. We spent the day out in the middle of nowhere, banded together to support less than 150 runners - runners who were out testing themselves to conquer the mountains - and their own minds and bodies...
I'm so proud of Paul and what he's accomplished for himself - with less than a year of ultrarunning under his belt he has conquered some very harsh terrain, and has taken each experience straight to the heart. I love watching and helping him out through all of this!
And my 14yo son - he is growing up in this environment and latching on to it... he went out to several aid stations during this race and volunteered, helping out runners and making sure they were getting everything they needed. He waited at two different aid stations for his Dad, and then after all of that, ran the last 9-10 miles with a friend to finish her race!
