My most interesting run came two weekends ago. There is an event in Philly called the Back on My Feet Lone Ranger which is a 24 hour ultrarunning event. I volunteered to be a pacer for the race, a race I did a few years ago. It is a great event. I was not sure what to expect as a pacer, especially because I had volunteered for the early morning hours, 2am to 6am. When I got there they set me up with the girl who was leading the female race, Sabrina Moran. She is the American record holder in miles run over 24 hours. She's a machine. Check out her blog http://notallergictoadventure.blogspot.com/
So I ran with her from 2:30am until 6am, 17 miles. Then she continued on until the end of the 24 hours and won the race completing 139 miles. Incredible. It was very interesting to run with her and see what she went through pushing her body to the limit.
This past weekend I was at the beach with the fam and got in two great 10 mile training runs on Saturday and Sunday, running on the beach. I started around 5:30am each morning and ran as the sun came out. Well it came out one of the two days, the first day was completely overcast so I couldn't really tell when it became lighter, as you can see from the below pictures, but Sunday was different. Got to see a GREAT sunrise. Check out the pics below
Saturday's no sun, sunrise run
