Figured it's time to start off the thread for 2017
I ran the Donna 110 ultra marathon in Jacksonville Beach this weekend. 2 day race with 83.8 miles on Saturday followed by 26.2 Sunday morning. I finished day 1 in 14:48, over 2 hours behind the leader but over 2 hours ahead of 3rd. I wish it would have been 110 straight. My entire body locked up Saturday night and my marathon Sunday was just a battle of will. Most painful thing I can remember doing, 6:07 of pure torture. Thought about quitting numerous times, but didn't want to waste the 84 miles I had already logged. Final time was roughly 20:55 which is about an 11:25 min/mi. The guy that won is a machine, and possibly the nicest guy I've ever met. He did the first day in 12:13 (8:44 min/mi which was a bad day for him) then followed it up with a freakin 3:01 marathon.

Everyone sees all the glorious, triumphant, looking-like-a-boss photos of the athletes on race day (and I got a few of those) but I thought it'd be way more fun to post the most UNflattering photos of everyone I got. Then fill in thought bubbles for them. This is the first edit, more to come. (Also, feel free to suggest other thought bubbles). Also, there were no unflattering photos of Ryf. She looks perfect in all of them. It's annoying.
And some final concluding thoughts from our favorite Canadian...
Love you, Lionel! Sworry!
