I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos! And I have the absolute best wife in the world. And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

That's great Jon. Great race, great time.
I suppose 5 minutes is "edging out" in the ultra world.

Great job on the win and being in the now group of 4 runners. Pretty impressive!

Another Win! Go Jon! Very impressive especially considering your niggles and lack of "Jon worthy training".

Nice going Jon. Since your recaps leave much to the imagination, I looked up the course... pretty tough! Drops ~1000 feet in the first 3 miles and then goes straight back up? That's a hard way to ease into a 50K.

I'm glad we got a course description from someone! Way to go Jon, great racing!

Nice work, congrats on the win.

Jake, I hope to do a report eventually. More info- 32 miles, 5100 ft climbing, all single track, some technical, only one bear.
