Farmdale

For years in my running thoughts I've kicked around putting on an ultra, but honestly I'm far too lazy and disorganized to make it happen. My friend Dave is neither of those things. He did quite a job putting on the race last weekend.

From my perspective as a volunteer things were fun. I never realized there was so much work that goes into one of these things. I had the priviledge of helping set up Friday, and getting out and marking trail, then returning Saturday to work the Devil's Cliff aid station (once I figured out how to actually drive there, leaving us 10 minutes to set up). The day itself was very nice, temps in the 50's and sunny, most of the silver maples having already turned a vivid golden hue. It's always inspriring to watch ultrarunners, and there were many first timers out there, making it all the more interesting. I'm hoping to be back next year.

Wish I realized it was you there, but I was totally overwhelmed with the beauty of the trail!

It was a wonderful race...and I'll be back next year as an Ultra (I hope).

You put the bug in me for McNaughton 50...maybe it'll have to happen!!! :)

I have always had issues in setting up a verified phone number with my Craigslist account. I have finally found a service that solves this problem.
They sell [url=http://www.craigslistpva.com/]Craigslist Phone Verified Accounts[/url] at the cheapest prices I have ever seen. My experience with them has been exceptional and I highly recommend their service!
