Presque the numbers

What a day it was. I'm wiped out, yet soaring on an adrenaline high. Most people, myself included, cannot believe it. 76 miles in 12 hours.

Catching up with sleep and real life is calling now, but I'll be sure to write a report soon. I've never been involved with a run like this and there's lots to tell. This was no race. Everyone involved strived for a common goal: To push further and towards a personal record. With the loop course, I met and chatted with folks that I would never meet in the course of a race. Everyone was very supportive of each other.

In the meantime, here's a little numerical breakdown of my Presque Isle 12 hour Personal Endurance Run, hosted by the Erie Runners Club. I can't wait to tell the rest of the story...Lloyd


11:57:xx - Elapsed time
76 - Miles travelled
9:27 per mile pace

Since it was chip timed, complete mile splits will be posted on the Erie website soon. I'm interested to see the splits because I never concerned myself with my pace, nor did I keep splits.

Time hacks at selected mile marks:

10mi- 1:28
20mi- 2:58
31mi- 4:34
40mi- 5:59
50mi- 7:37
62mi- 9:43

After this point I knew I would make my goal of 72 miles and just ran the best I could to the end.

By the marathon:
1st 26mi- 3:50
2nd 26mi- 4:07
Last 24mi- 3:59

By the 10s:
0-10 -- 1:28:07
11-20 -- 1:29:54
21-30 -- 1:29:07
31-40 -- 1:32:52
41-50 -- 1:37:20
51-60 -- 1:48:08
61-70 -- 1:39:41
71-76 -- 0:52:36
67-76 -- 1:28:56

I saw Louis on the bus ride back yesterday and he told me about your run. Absolutely amazing!!! We are thinking about car pooling to JFK as a group would you be prepared to have two ladies along with you? You could tell us ALL about the 12 hour run!
