Howl at the Moon- 8 hour Ultra, Danville IL

Congrats to everyone at Howl! As usual it was a hot and humid race. It's southern IL in August, what else can we expect? I had a lot of fun at the Margaritaville Aid station. It was interesting watching it this year. Christine Crawford was focused all day long, running a great steady pace. I found out after the race she was hurting, but you certainly could not tell from watching her. She is amazing and it was great to watch her win! Ellen and Kathleen (2nd and 3rd female) made it look easy all day. Both were joking with the volunteers at every stop. Ellen even took a little break to catch up with friends and pass out hugs. Those two are a couple of strong runners and it was a joy to see them.

Great job everyone!!!!

  1. Congratulations to all the participants. It's a great way to get involved with this kind of activity because you can meet new people and become friends with them. Second, you will get healthy because obviously you're running. And lastly, you feel great, you feel comfortable especially with the type of shoes you use. I'm using Inov-8 Roclite 285 for running. How about you?

  2. I haven't tried the Roclites yet, I actually have a pair on order. I use the Terrocs and the Flyrocs. I like the Flyroc's for dirt, rock, and water crossing trails. I use the Terroc's on dirt, rock, water, trail races that have quite a bit of roads as well. What kind of terrain do you run on?
