The Human Rocket Strikes PA




Amazing views? Imagine running through these boulder fields at some point along a 24.9 mile trail run in Central PA, a megatransect to be exact. Well, Susannah made her way back to PA for a few days to take part in this absolutely insane event. The Great One also participated in this insanity (for the second year in a row.)

Susannah placed first in her age group, and 35th over all, there were 450 people. Her time for these 24.9 miles over boulder fields, rolling hills, mountains and such was 5 hours and 48 minutes. The Great One also finished strong, strolling leisurely accross the finish line at 7 hours and 24 minutes, of course someone had to stop and take the photos.

Nice work ladies, a fantabulous performance and much respect.

Thanks so much for the write-up! Believe it or not, my sole training for this "insanity" was CF workouts in the blazing Floridian sun.

Who else is willing to take on the challenge for next year's race? There's an unlimited supply of free beer after the race!

Thatis an awesome accomplishment. You guys rock!!!
In the interest of full disclosure, I would like to say that all of the chalk handprints left on the floor after the 7pm class last night belong to Greg and not me. That is all.
