Antelope Island Buffalo Run 2011
I have ran the 50 mile Buffalo Run on Antelope Island every year since they have started so of course I would enter again this year. I was a bit worried to run this race because I had been sick two weeks prior for 8 days and was confined to the house. Then I was feeling better enough to run a 13 mile run on Sunday with Chad Carson. Chad is a local anaesthesiologist and a well known ultra runner. We are training for the ledvilleman this year in August. After our 13 mile run I had a relapse of illness leading up to 5 days before the Buffalo so I was debating on running. I ended up running and turns out I was feeling just fine. My LaSportiva Shoes held up very well and took me the whole 50 miles without any foot issues at all. My co worker Dixi came out and paced the last 11 miles of the run. The weather was perfect and I even PR'ed on the course.
