Wapack 50/Pineland Farms 50

Adam’s pretty heavily involved in his ultramarathon racing season. Two weeks ago he raced the Wapack 50.

It’s 50 miles on the rugged Wapack trail in Southern New Hampshire. Cooper and I hiked Pack Monadnock so we could meet him and there was rocks that the puppy just couldn’t jump in the middle of the trail. I can’t imagine what the other 48.5 miles were like.

He had to drop out after 42 miles. His feet were completely messed up from being too wet too long. I had never seen anything like it before.

He still got a medal for finishing 42 miles but he was disappointed in not finishing.

So last weekend while I was in Quebec he was in Maine racing the Pineland Farms 50 miler. I don’t have any pictures of the race. But he finished 16th with a time of 8 hours and 28 minutes. A new Personal Record for him and something to get his ego back into place.

Next race is Pittsfield Peaks in Vermont June 6th. I should be there for that one.

  1. Wow, I wish I could be disappointed with ONLY finishing 42 miles! I’m afraid I’d be out by 5…and that includes walking!
