158 Turtle Marathon 09/05/11 Roswell NM 5:15:42 Marathon 56       Labor Day Monday holiday marathon with 5:30 AM start, perfect to beat the heat. We were further blessed with mild weather. Out and back on lightly traveled highway with 47 marathon finishers. Water stops were cases of water on the ground with a bag of ice on top and that was just fine.
157 Pikes Peak Marathon 08/21/11 Manitou Springs CO 9:53:49 Marathon 571 726/ 728 541/ 541 45/ 45 Hardest marathon I have ever run (walked mostly). I was DFL to the top after beating cutoffs at Barr Camp and A-Frame. Thanks to the encouragement of all the folks at top I made the cutoff by 25 seconds and shortly realized I would have to hustle on the downhill to make 10 hour time limit. Small hail and rain attacked with a drop in temp to around 45 degrees at mile 11-12, but fortunately did not worsen. As I descended I calculated and recalculated my finish possibilities. At mile 9 my predicted finish was going to be 10:22 and I knew I had to run the rest of the way. Pressing with 9-10 minute miles I passed a dozen people to just barely make it and conquer Pikes Peak. A 3:24 descent. Harry Otto of the North Texas Striders went along for the challenge and finished in 7:52:33

153 Brookings Marathon 05/14/11 Brookings, SD SD 4:24:52 Marathon 230       <300 marathoners. Flat course connected by town trails. I think we ran up and down most of the streets in Brookings. Weather was a perfect 42 degrees and rain held off till mile 25. And was only a short drizzle. I meet Jim Simpson mid race and got caught up on his adventures.
152 Flying Pig Marathon 05/01/11 Cincinnatti OH 5:11:05 Marathon 476       DOUBLE: My 3rd Flying Pig. I love the pig theme and enthusiastic spectators. My friend Jack, a frequent century rider, hosted me for the weekend.

144 National Marathon 03/26/11 Washington DC DC 4:41:48 Marathon 517       DOUBLE: My first DC marathon with a great tour of the city. Many Marathon Maniacs participated like Lien James and Cowboy Jeff. Jeff was leading a 4:30 pace team and I tagged along for a while.

142 A-OK 50K 03/06/11 Atoka OK 6:16:45 50 km 586       28 degree start. Only a few of us selected this back woods trail run, 14 in 50 K, maybe 60 people total in 25K and 50K. This trail run has ankle breaking rocks hidden in the leaves. We all rejoiced when we got to the gravel road sections. It was a victory for me since I did not fall. Almost did several times.
141 Cowtown Marathon 02/27/11 Fort Worth TX 4:49:33 Marathon 110       I ran most of the race with Richard, a fellow Rio Marathon traveler. New location and moved to Sunday. I like the new start location with lots of space and plenty of parking. My favorite part was passing through the old Cowtown stockyards. I am hooked to continue on the 5 year medal plan. Great idea!
140 Miracle Match Marathon 01/30/11 Waco TX 5:03:09 Marathon 244       Friends and fellow North Texas Striders, ML and Alex, were my reason to sign up. Why not, it's close to Flower Mound? And in a stroke of good luck I finished with Steve Grady another runner I know in the Flower Mound area. The last half of race lived up to its reputation of hills, hills and more hills. Nice finish across the wood slat suspension bridge.
139 Charleston Marathon 01/15/11 Charleston SC 4:45:13 Marathon 605       A reunion with Rich and Cheri where we did some touring in a horse drawn carriage. I ran with/into Kathy, Carol, Diane, Diana, Larry and Martha. Cheri and I ran most of the race together. The north section became a maze of twists and turns where we could see runners on adjacent streets.
138 Running from an Angel Marathon 01/08/11 Boulder City NV 4:43:05 Marathon 62       A day in the Park with great Vistas around Lake Mead. It was great to see Dick Vogt again. Lucy went along for this trip and we toured Hoover Dam after the race.

Al Kohli and I ran many miles together and 100's of photos were shot. The wind on the south leg to mile 21 was horrendous and I made the side trip to the Center of the Universe and got the coin and photo. Two great days!
135 White River Marathon 11/20/10 Cotter AR 4:27:14 Marathon 414       DOUBLE: Foggy, cool weather made for a great day on an out and back twice course. Marianne and Ed teamed with me to run this double. I wore my cowboy hat and red scarf and imitated Cowboy Jeff.
134 Fort Worth Marathon 11/14/10 Fort Worth TX 4:55:55 Marathon 34       A perfect day in Fort Worth as we ran South along the Trinity River. Unfortunatley for the race director his water station volunteers between miles 2 and 12 did not show up on time. Fortunatly there were park water fountains along the way.
133 Marine Corps Marathon 10/31/10 Washington DC DC 5:09:07 Marathon 19820       Halloween, cowboy hat, red scarf, TX shorts: my Cowboy Jeff costume. Weather was great and I heard, "Go Cowboy", "Go Texas" and "Yee Hah!" I even passed an indian who said, "We should talk," but he had a tomahawk so I raced ahead.
132 Atlantic City Marathon 10/18/10 Atlantic City NJ 5:06:55 Marathon 34       DOUBLE: We got lots of attention at the pasta dinner with our neon Baltimore shirts. Note: this was the best pre race dinner I have ever seen. An elaborate buffet in a grand ballroom with live music. Race day was beautiful and Jackie, Jim, Marianne and I ran together as much as possible. We had a great time talking to the first timers and even handed out advice. And I told some old jokes. Marianne almost laughed once or twice. I especially enjoyed running on the boardwalk.
131 Baltimore Marathon 10/17/10 Baltimore MD 4:52:27 Marathon 524       DOUBLE: Enthusiastic crowds kept us pumped up. The course passed through eclectic neighborhoods, the waterfront and around a lake.

130 Maine Marathon 10/03/10 Portland ME 4:49:11 Marathon 272       DOUBLE: Maniacs everywhere. We had a great time on this flat course with water views and tree lined residential streets. Cheri, Gregg, Joe, Frances and Rich all here.

128 Lehigh Valley Marathon 09/12/10 Allentown PA 5:08:10 Marathon 50       Beautiful trails with a cooling rain for 2 hours. Rocks in my shoes. Gun range nearby by was a little strange. 2 Maniacs fell on the slick mud of trail. That might be a record
127 Heart of America Marathon 09/06/10 Columbia MO 5:02:01 Marathon 289       Remarkably the lowest race fee I have paid in years $25 and yet all the things we expect in a marathon were provided. Even free post-race pizza at Shakespeares Pizza. Met K2 and Robert at the start.
126 Run With the Horses Marathon 08/21/10 Green River WY 5:41:10 Marathon 253       The climb from mile 2-6 is tough. 22 miles on gravel road above the river in the wide open spaces of Wyoming. The water park at finish was the best!
125 Northwest Passage 50 K 08/01/10 Arctic Watch NU 7:02:08 50 km 13       Remote, rocky, Arctic Ocean shoreline, sea ice and icebergs nearby, too many water crossings to count, Beluga Whale watching adventure. I ran alongside Cheri Pompeo and Rich Holmes for many kilometers.

123 Bear Lake Marathon ID=>UT 06/12/10 Garden City ID 4:51:42 Marathon 786       DOUBLE. We really appreciated the efforts the race directors went to for this event. Early route was hilly and the new bike lane was a welcome feature to running on the road with vehicles. Mile 12 wind in our face changed to wind at our back as we turned West. I stood up straighter and held my elbows out to catch the wind and flew. The muddy gravel road was fun, but challenging. Rejoining the highway on the West side of the lake exposed us to highway traffic, particularly big truck/trailers going fast. Running with Joe, Steve, Jackson Hole, Dad and the twins, and the life guard girls made this event fun. Chicked at 25.8 again!
122 Bear Lake Marathon UT=>ID 06/11/10 Garden City UT 4:42:52 Marathon 1999       DOUBLE, a perfect 50 stater opportunity, UT and ID in one easy trip.

121 Minneapolis Marathon 06/06/10 Minneapolis MN 4:49:30 Marathon 1389       A very well organized small race. Race bibs with name and town name. Nice. The steep hill at mile 18 (Fort Snelling) was a psychological defeat. However preferred over running down this same hill like last year.
120 Providence Marathon 05/02/10 Providence RI 4:56:52 Marathon 113       A pleasure compared to the Muddy Marahton the day before. Sun came out to bring the temperature into the 80's
