Quote of the Week

"The one thing that separates ultra runners from other contributing members of society, and other athletes, is the ability to forgo all reason, logic, judgment, and fear and jump into the arms of certain pain solely on intuition and ambition"

-Hal Koerner (after the Rocky Raccoon 100)


  1. true dat! Did I ever tell you Kathleen ran the Rocky Raccoon 50K in Huntsville, TX? She ran one other ultra back in the 90s also...

  2. I did remember that Kathleen did an ultra but didn't realize she'd been to Rocky Raccoon. Lyle P. was planning to run the 100 mi but had some injury trouble and had to withdraw. Lyle did the Javelina 100 last fall.
