    Default Meltzer's Pinhoti 100 Time!! SICK!

    16:42:20 !!! 16 hours and 40 minutes is an average of exactly 6 miles per hour.

    Even though the average terrain is easier than the AT, 80 miles of it is on trail. To average 10 minute miles for 100 miles is amazing.

    Met Karl in 2008. He is the real deal. There was talk of him doing the AT again in 2012 or 2013.

    The terrain is easier than the AT, but nobody does a 10-minute mile up the stairway to heaven or a number of other climbs along the PT. Karl is a true specimen.
    If people spent less time being offended and more time actually living, we'd all be a whole lot happier!

    That reminds me of a thought I had the other day. Can we consider traditional marathons as endurance events any longer?

    I wonder this not only because of these crazy 100+ mile runs, which seem to be increasing, but also normal marathons seem to be very popular; actually, running, in general seems to be very popular and growing in popularity. The New York marathon ususally allows anywhere from 40-60 thousand runners participate and that's after turning away many, many applicants. They usually release them in waves of around 15,000.

    For an idea of what 15,000 people look like check out this video that shows the start of our annual local run here in Jax. (only about 9.3 miles) Gate River Run http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EI64AumHkI0&feature=fvst


    BTW, Karl is the man!
