Ice Age Trail 50K May 14, 2011

3rd and 4th place females, I slowed down after this first section finishing 13th female

Kept each other company once the field spread out

Finishing together
State #17 -Wisconsin
~ 2,000 ft of gain/loss
Lots of little ups and downs
5:58:14 Pace 11:32
Female 13/49
Overall 55/142

Rain held off until the last 2 hours of the race, temperature in the upper 40's but muggy so all the runners were warm and sweaty and the volunteers and crew all looked freezing cold. Well organized race, great long sleeve tech shirt, the 50k finishers got key chains that looked like the finisher's belt buckle that the 50 milers received.

Maybe next year I can be in better shape and place higher! One of the classic American Ultras!

  1. i thought this was wisconsin - only b/c when i was there for my marathon last weekend i passed an area that had an "ice age trail". course that could be a common name i guess.

    you are an overachiever... running ultras for the 50-state club!
