Long-Term Running Goals:

I would like to keep running ultras into my 60s. 

Personal:

Details at: http://www.crockettclan.org/ultras/ultracrockett.pdf Married with six kids and six grandchildren.  Started running at the age of 46 in 2004.  My first race since Junior High days was a 50K. I skipped the shorter road stuff and went straight to ultramarathons.  I started as a back-of-the packer, but have progressed to a top-10-percent ultra finisher.  Wish I would have started running at a much earlier age.  Have had several articles published in national running magazines.  Check out my running adventure blog at www.crockettclan.org/blog

Just 33 restful miles for the week.  I've recovered and decided to run another 100 in a week near Las Vegas, a new 100 and a free entry.  New 100s are always adventure runs.  There will always be hicups and problems, you just have to go into with an attitude of having some fun and not being conserned about competing.  It will be a 25 mile loop course done four times.  Weather will be pleasant, a little too warm, but I can deal with it.

On the subject of the cheater runner, I've been in contact with the RD for the next race he will do.  It is a race I detected him cheating in last year.  The RD was already aware of this runner, knew his name before I told it, because of other complaints from runners.  So, it sounds like they will take some action this year.  I now recall two years ago was the first time I detected him cheating in a 100-miler.  During an out-and-back, I detected that he cheated an out and back.  I was shocked but not certain.  I looked at my Strava data yesterday to check the milage.  He would have had to travel six miles in the time I ran two to catch up to me.  Impossible because he had a huge rugged slow 1,000-foot climb and descent to do, along with two more miles on top of a mesa. He cheated nearly an hour off the course.  So he even cheats on non-loop 100s.  Wow.
