Race: Hot Hundred 100k (45.6 Miles) 10:24:51
Easy MilesMarathon Pace MilesThreshold MilesVO2 Max MilesTotal Distance
45.600.000.000.0045.60

Hot Hot Hundred 100k race in Wallingford, KY.  Inaugral year for solo 100k in KY on trail - close to Morehead, KY.  Drove about 3 hours the night before, and camped in the car seat.  Pretty comfortable with the seat leaned back.  

Met up with Nathan and the Bourne to Run, aka Good Times Running guys close to the starting/finish line in their camper before race start.  Fun times, good company, ready to run!

Everybody started together: 10k, 100k Relay, and 100k Solo.  Tough to tell what was going on for a while.  The field of a bout 100 spread out quickly after climb number 1 of 3 of the 10k loop.  Lap number 1 was a breeze effort wise, but, in retrospect should have been much slower.  Washing machine style (alternaing directions around the 10k loop) splits:

10k - 1:07:37 (CCW)

20k - 1:11:58 (CW)     2:20

30k - 1:18:41 (CCW)  3:42       

40k - 1:25:38 (CW)     5:11

50k - 1:47:00 (CCW)  7:00

Got really hot and strongly considered dropping.  Side stitch in each side coming in to aid station 

60k - 1:38:29 (CW)    8:42

Bounced back a bit

70k - 1:49:48 (CCW) 10:24:51

Think there was some stadning around time included on this lap.  Moving time total was 10:20:05 for a total of 45.61 miles and 8k of vertical up+down, so we're clocking about 2 miles longer after 7 laps, and about 30 minutes behind the cutoff (16 hours).

Sat my tired ass down in the aid station and thoght about quitting.  As I started to get up and consider going back out on the course (from the nice dry and well stocked barn aid station), a strong storm blew through.  That was enough for me to call it.  DNF.  Drank a couple beers with Nathan and crew and enjoyed chilling with them for while.
