Time to Taper

This past Sunday, Nate and I ran in the Vermont 50 Mile Ultra. The race is a mountain race traversing the many dirt roads and single track trails of East Central Vermont including the towns of Hartland, Windsor and Brownsville. This is our longest run heading into the Run Across NH as we not taper for our last 2.5 weeks heading into our big run.

Nate finished in a time of 9 Hours 23 Minutes 12 Seconds.
He was 15th in his age group (Men 40-49) and 40th out of the 162 finishers of the race.

Sherpa John finished in a time of 8 Hours 58 Minutes 43 Seconds.
He was 7th in his age group (Men 20-29) and 30th out of the 162 finishers of the race.

Two amazing runs to top off the training regime as Nate and John make their final preparations for their run across NH.
