That's a great list of racers!!  Laura and Jen are superwomen, racing both days!  Marysia is taking on a BIG race!  Good luck to all, have fun!

I will be racing a trail 'scamper', LOL.  2.3 miles, the Lehigh Gap Nature Center More or Less a 10K Trail Run and More than a 2 mile Scamper.  EFP is doing the more or less 10K.

Hope everyone's races went well today. I just spent an hour de-manateeing Jim's car. Who knew that glass paint and tempur paint would be so hard to remove. Made me giggle to try to get rid or the Doooooo Eeeet on the back of the car.

Ugh! Sorry that it took so long.  I hope the red window chalk marker cleaned up OK for you. 

It looks like Marysia finished her 50k in 9:57. Good for her!

I didn't see any of results from Miami online just yet.

wow, you guys had some fun in your car! Mine was rather dirty , but didn’t take long to clean. Of course, the only outside decorations were the tags put on by Janyne and the four fabulous female team! The manatee tag may still be there

Wow! WHat a nice Miami team )) I hope you all had fun and plenty of sun! (cheers from Chicagoland covered with snow...)

My run went really well considering the fact I barely trained... I decided to still run it, but with very conservative approach. Run slow, walk every ten minutes, walk all hills. I was in a constant communication with my partner who was climbing in the area, so that if I needed to drop at any point, he would pick me up. I run the Rough Trail in the past, so I knew and remembered how difficult it was. But it was also extremely interesting and beautiful. The weather was perfect too.
There was a moment at 9:30 when I realized I would not make it for the 10 hours cutoff, and decided to just walk and eat my chips. 10 minutes to the end I saw a sign pointing to the campground (where finish line was) and decided to give it one last shot. I made it in 9 hours 57 minutes, and it was a happy moment
Recovery goes well, no injuries, just a standard "muscles getting back to normal". I walk like duck on steroids today...

I really, really enjoy trail running, and I truly enjoy long distances. For some reason 10 hours felt much better than 1 hour 10K... I hope I will be back on ultra race sooner than later.

Have a great week everyone!

PS I would keep that Dooo Eeet on my car!

jim was a little less than thrilled. Unfortunately, input it on the car paint and.... well.. none of it cane off as easily as i hoped. I am envious of your love of trail running and long distances. Hope you get back to flying long distances soon.

Someone in the IM Lou FB group asked about powermeters a while ago. I responded with an actual answer and then said wait a few weeks to see if you can score a deal with the Clever Training VIP 20% off coupon that should be out in a few weeks. Well, a few weeks have passed and...

The Clever Training VIP sale starts today (November 14-24). DCR post about it at https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2019/11/huge-fall-sale-20-off-including-trainers-and-many-other-products.html. There are some exclusions (it looks like Assioma is exclused but Garmin pedals and PowerTap pedals are not).
 
You must be a Clever Training VIP to get the 20% off. Membership is a one time fee of $4.99. https://www.clevertraining.com/dcr-vip-membership?acc=1679091c5a880faf6fb5e6087eb1b2dc
 
I posted the above in the IM Lou group but I wanted to share some potential savings with the Manatees.

I should probably have been a bit more clear -- the sale is not just for powermeters.  One year, I got my trainer, another year, I got my power meter, they also have stuff like the Scosche and other gear of interest.
