This Weekend

The Nike Fleet Feet Racing Team will be sending 4 members to Old Dominion 100 miler in Woodstock, Virginia, including James Falcon (his first hundred miler), Eric Fritz (his first mountain hundred), Blake Thompson (coming off of a 2nd OA at Lean Horse 100) and Dink Taylor (ultra running veteran).  These guys have been training since the beginning of the year for this race and Eric Fritz summed it up well by saying: "I brought a pair of pants to wear after the race that are 2 sizes too big for me and I brought a belt with no buckle."  This race has 14 major climbs totalling 14,000' of climb.

Christy Scott will be running Shadow of the Giants 50km, which is 33 magic miles of scenic trails through the Sierra National Forest. Last minute updates on the website indicate there was tons of residual deep snow and it was impossible to cross giant fallen trees...

David O'Keefe will be running the Golden Gate Dirty Thirty 50km on meandering single track trails through peaceful aspen groves, grassy meadows, tranquil pine forests and rocky ridges with majestic views of snow capped mountains in Golden Gate Canyon State Park, Colorado.

Best of luck to the entire team in where ever your Fleet Feet take you.
