Breck 100 Report

This is long over due, but I though I put in a few words about my first attempt at the Breck 100.   First of all, a great race, well organized and staffed.  The 6am start was a little tough, but after we got rolling, everything was fine.

I ended up 19th overall, and 6th in my age group, in 10:10hr.

The race went as planed for me.  I had expected to finish in 10hrs, and  had set out for a pace of 9.5mph avg speed, in my zone 3 HR.    On the climbs, HR moved in to low zone 4, which I was still able to maintain through out the race.

After each loop, I had fresh water and restocked fuel with Gel, Heed and Perpetuem, enough for the complete lap with out stopping.   However, after 8 hours, and at the top of Boreas Pass Road, I did stop for some real food.  I had a couple of bananas and some fig newtons.
