I wanted to write and give congrats to some tough dudes on their runs this weekend.
First great job to Greg Crowther on his 50K National title and taking the $500 bucks for winning and the course record bonus.
Great job to Dick Beardsley who after 12 (or so) serious spinal surgeries, knee surgeries, car accidents, and farm machinery mishaps ran a solid 2:45 at the napa valley marathon at the age of 50.
Good work to Patrick Russell on this weekends 37 miler at 6:26 pace. Man, April's 100K National Championships is going to be a super heavyweight fight with Greg, Patrick, and Scott Jurek all set to battle.
