Hagg Lake 50K

Had a good day at Hagg. The course was relatively dry, with just a few patches of shoe-sucking muck. Other than that, good running. There are no big climbs at Hagg, just gentle rollers. Finished in 4:42:40, which is a 50K PR for me. This in spite of losing some time after taking a wrong turn. Lots of fun. Good representation from Corvallis, including John, Jan, Ken and Rita. Josh and Ashley were also there. Ashley did great, finishing 3rd in 4:10. Full results are here.

Orcas Island 50K

Ran the Orcas Island 50K this past weekend. This was my 5th time running this race. We had a great crew from Corvallis, including Gaby, Ken, Cary, Todd, Kathleen, Erica, and the Millers. The weather was perfect. The course was changed from last year a bit, and had a total climb of 8,400'. I finished in 6:28, which is a bit more than I was hoping for, but not bad. Cary did real well, running a sub-6, and Andrew did a fantastic job, coming in 5th overall with an amazing time of 4:52. Full results are here. My Garmin track is here. And while we were all running, Marilyn and Diane had a fun time exploring Lopez Island and rock hounding.
