Bighorn 100 Update

(One of the canyons we made our way through this weekend)

I'm here in Denver, CO still trying to gather my bearings from The Bighorn 100 mile race this past weekend. I ran a strong race and was very pleased with my outcome, although I must say it was the most difficult race I have run so far. It was also one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen!

I finished in 4th place overall with a time of 20:43. Full results and splits can be seen HERE. I will try to post a full race report when I get back to Portland.

Yassine,
It was great meeting you at Bighorn. Thanks for your support and I'm sorry you had to take off before I finished. Great race! I just finished up my first race report for my first 100. I also have some pictures I could send you if you shoot me an email.
Take care,
Rob

Thanks Nancy! I was trying to catch Browning but just couldn't muster much more in the last 20 miles. I was really happy w/ the way I ran in terms of strength and consistency. Hey! You coming to White River 50?

Josh: You were a life saver...for real...I contemplated DNF'ing until I saw you at 48. I was a different person after that! Thank you...Ash is lucky to have you...You two are a force to be reckoned with! :o)

Way to tough it out Cheri...I know quitting probably become an option many times but your perseverance on that course is impressive...congrats!
