Ultracentric 48 Hr
Two weeks ago I was at the Ultracentric 48 hour race in TX. After running slowly all day, trying to conserve energy, I retreated to my car form the extreme cold and wind. I slept in the car for a few hours and tried to get back out but I was unprepared for the cold and the wind. I didn’t realize TX could be so cold. That plus poor conditioning forced me back into my car until the morning. The next day I ran for a few more hours and decided to stop running at 100k. Although it was a great experience for me, I wouldn’t attempt the Ultracentic again.
-Umstead 50 Miles - 3/31/07 - 50 Miles - Raleigh, NC - 9:44:30 - 22nd place out of 107 runners. This run was an attempt to run 100 miles. I decided to drop out at mile 75, my 50 mile time is however counted.
