Odds and Ends

It was an exciting weekend of racing all over the world – here are some highlights:

Yemane Tsegay ran 2:06:54 at the Ottawa Marathon – it was a course record and the fastest time ever on Canadian soil.


Kilian Jornet won the Zegama Marathon for the 7th time and obliterated the old course record – he finished in 3:48:38 (photo credit: iRunFar).


Stevie Kremer (Salomon) pulled away in the women’s race at Zegama and won in 4:46:43. Check out how close two through five were:

2) Elisa Desco (SCOTT) – 4:50:20
3) Maite Maiora (La Sportiva) – 4:51:47
4) Emelie Forsberg (Salomon) – 4:52:12
5) Kasie Enman (Salomon) – 4:53:33

In other news, I’ve made a few modifications to my Cayuga Trails 50 Men’s Elite Preview. I also have at least one more to make, as Dave James has thrown his hat in the ring. Dave has gone 13:06:52 for 100 miles – need I say more? I will be adding him in the near future and early indications are that he will come in at 4:1.

I’ll cover this more later in the week, but the weather for Cayuga Trails 50 looks like it will be a factor. Early indications are for a humid day with temps around 80. Welcome to Summer in New York.

Did you race this weekend? How did it go?

Do you like running in the heat?

    I’m terrible at running in the heat, my times slow way down and I tend to get dizzy on long runs. Virginia summers are just way too hot and humid for me. Give me October weather all year long and I’d be thrilled!

    I learned some new stuff today, I like the pictures too!

  3. Would you rather run in a Texas summer or Upstate NY winter? That is the real question.

    As long as I can get up early enough to beat the heat up here in New England, I don’t mind. I absolutely hate running outside in the winter, but think I’ll have to try to get more acclimated to it this upcoming winter…I’m pretty sure overuse of the treadmill is one of the reasons why I was injured this past winter.

  5. I ran Boston’s Run to Remember Half on sunday. I started too far back and got stuck. I still managed to run some excellent miles and feel pretty good about the race. My own fault not lining up sooner and in a better spot.
    I prefer heat to cold.
