Btw, I saw in Garmin Connect Jerry had done 20 miles in similar pace on Sunday. lol!

OK I took it the wrong way, of course, and thought it was kind of snotty, but as long as you're deferring to Schuey's ability to run faster and farther than you, I can accept that.

I have yet to run a marathon at 9:19 pace, and when I run my 50 miler I have no idea how my pace will be but it will certainly be slower than 10:00.

Julie should never take Jerry's statement seriously. lol!

Or Jerry will have to buy some insurance for his words going forward.

Schuey wrote:Alright now that we got all that all the way, let's now all have a happy and wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Yes I think that we all can say that we are all Thankful to have are agreements and disagreements about life, running and whatever else that we want to talk about on this site. I have to also admit that I'm flattered by the friendships I have with all of you.

Julie I can understand were you were coming from and that yes at times people can take what others says the wrong way. So thank you for all your Midwest support and love.

Jerry Jerry Jerry, you know that I would not be mad at your comments, I have been around you long enough to take a step back and say "what is Jerry, trying to say?" Sure I was a little thrown back do to the fact that it was a long way to run and I had to run through a Fing mountain for 15.5 miles and then on flat dirt trail for another 27 miles and then after that hit the rolling roads for another 8 miles, which I should add the the rolling hills really were rolling uphills with almost no downhills.

Also Jerry it's ok, you will not stop learning from me, just like I won't stop learning from you about marathon running or shorter distances. I am not done running marathons and I'm not done trying to run them fast. Don't forget my next big goal race is BOSTON and yes that race is 26.2 miles and yes I will be trying to run it as fast as I can.


I will save it for another post or most likely my new blog, because I feel that it should be time for a new blog more about why I want and why I will continue to run the Ultra distance not only 50 miles but also 100 mile races. I know it is hard for some to understand why one would want to put themselves through such things but I will try to give a little light on it again later.


Again I just want to thank everyone here for their support, it really does hit home and really does help lifts ones' sprits and helps me try to be the best that I can be. In the future and starting with my new blog I will not be as distant as I have become over the last couple of months. I really fought with do I want to air my problems online??

Over the weekend Kevin and I had such a wonderful heart to heart talk during are 11 mile stretch of running( mile 27 to mile 38), which will be one of the biggest highlights if not the biggest highlight of the day for me. I don't want to go much into the day due to the fact that I want to save as much as possible for my report on my first attempt at running 50 miles. I will add that for you that have continued to read this long post by me and to the people that know me well from the boards life has not been ALL THAT EASY FOR US over the last couple of months. There has been some good things going on that have add stress but there has also been a lot of life changing events that took place that have not only hit Lisa and I hard but my family also. These things being gaining a job, working nights, schedule adjustments, injuries, losing a job and then top the cake an Uncle dying suddenly did not allow much time on the boards or time to train. So one could say that yes "Schuey The Bull" was very scared and frighten to run a 50 mile race.

I don't think that I will go into all the details of what happened because frankly it is all in the past and well being strong people we weathered through the storm and Saturday was the closer of that chapter in our lives and it turned out to be a happy ending to it. This is why the gift of life and sport is so wonderful because if one opens themselves up to it there are so many valuable listens and insights one can learn.

Look into any eyes
you find by you, you can see
clear through to another day
I know it's been seen before
through other eyes on other days
while going home-
What do you want me to do,
to do for you to see you through?
It's all a dream we dreamed
one afternoon long ago

That was a really great post, baby and I am looking forward to you posting your race report. It was a truly spiritual weekend and we were blessed to have it. I love you!

Great thoughts Schuey. Given what you guys have been going through these last months, I have a feeling that training for and running this ultra was therapeutic, if not cathartic for you. I look forward to your report.
And of course you totally nailed it by quoting "Box of Rain." Smile

Happy Thanksgiving Schuey and Lisa.

Schuey, I expect a very cool graph from your elevated experience in the mountains and hills.

BTW, how do you change pace/ km and elevation charts in km to pace per mile in the Garmin Connect report? I don't have any icons to click. Do I change it in my Garmin 305? My big hills look like molehills.

STUD. Smile

Looking forward to reading your report. I think that even Jerry is as well. Smile You always do a good job of capturing the emotion of an event, and I'm sure that a 50M race is emotional, especially with all you have had going on.

I hope you and Lisa and the rest of your family have a blessed Thanksgiving.

Oh My ... what is all this hullabaloo! Schuey, you put in one helluva performance on Saturday in a challenging race that runs over three distinct terrains and surface types. Before you post a race report and for the benefit of others, I post a JFK50 elevation profile below. You were once again Da Bull on Saturday in Washington County Maryland. It was my honor to share a few miles of the C&O canal towpath with you. Don't rush the report. May you and Lisa enjoy your Thanksgiving. Cheers!

Vegas set the over/under for word count at 5,000. I'm taking the over, and I'll read every one. Looking forward to it.

Ben, I'm here just been busy and a lot of things going on. Trust me there will be some updates real soon and hopefully a new blog. As for training just been doing a lot base stuff with some fartlek and Steady State runs. As for mileage I have no clue on how many miles I'm running each week. Every run I have been doing is been for time and I don't even track pace. The only time I'm tracking any type of pace is when I do my Steady State runs on the treadmill at the moment.

I have been flirting with the idea of trying this for my whole Boston Training cycle this year.

Thanks for ask Ben and I look forward to sharing not only my training but other great things that are going on.

No you didn't mess the race report. I was going to write one but since Jerry wasn't impressed with me running a 50 miler I decided that no one else would care either. affraid Plus I figured I won't put you all a Sleep with one of my long boring race reports.

But I will tell you this Ben it was one hell of run and one of my most memorial running events I have ever taken part of. The day was just awesome being out in nature, having my wife there and have 12 long miles to share with Kevin. There was nothing left to do but smile smile smile when the day had come to a end. I look forward to my next 50 miler in August and then JFK again in Nov.

First of all, Jerry is a moron. That said, you cannot use his opinion to decide whether to write a report when it's clear the rest of us want to read one. So....start writing!
