Umstead complete!

A full race report is forthcoming, but I thought I would make a quick post about this weekend at the Umstead 100 mile race in the Raleigh-Durham area, North Carolina.

Umstead is a super race. A pleasantly rolling, readily runnable course. A nice time of year (maybe not as nice this year as others). Well-organized, almost lavishly supported, with aid stations handled by extremely friendly and helpful volunteers.

My family and I had a great time on our trip there. I was really happy and grateful to be able to complete this race, my first attempt at 100 miles, in 27:41, and to do it with support from family and friends.

I hope to have a complete write-up online in a week or so.
