2013 Surf the Murph 50K Recap

Here’s my recap video:

Here’s the video I shot as Erika turned to an ultra marathoner:

Here are some of the cool things that I won’t forget:

  • Erika getting a cold the entire week before, not knowing if she was going to be able to pull this off.
  • Erika having issues with her ankle a few weeks before, not knowing if she was going to be able to pull this off.
  • The quesadilla was one of the best things I ever ate – It was about mile 20 and all it was was cheese and a wrap, but WOW!!
  • Both Erika and I grabbing a Mountain Dew and thinking it was gatorade – I didn’t even realize it until she said something after I was done.
  • The smorgasbord of food to eat at the aid stations – cookies, PB+J, grapes, bananas, M+Ms, soup, etc
  • A volunteer asking if I actually said “Delightful” when I grabbed a cookie.
  • At about mile 5, a deer ran across the path in front of us – like 10 feet in front of us – there was another that didn’t cross the trail
  • The most annoying heart rate monitor alarm ever.  For the last 6 miles we were with a guy who had a heart rate alarm – if it got to high it would beep, if it got to low it would beep to signal him to walk or start running.  Cool idea, except he had is set for a range of about 1 beat and it seemed like it was this guys goal to get his heart rate up, so it was beeping every 3 minutes.  Also, its volume was to 11.
  • Running with with the Hunter, Flash (who had the same shoes as me – then after the race had the same crocs as me) and with Roy
  • Thanks to Jeannie and Grandma for babysitting

Here’s my Garmin data – here’s what the weather was…
