PR at Run With An Angel 50 Mile Ultra


Competing in the Running With An Angel 50 Mile Ultramarathon is one of my favorite ways to start the new year.

This was my third time running, and winning this awesome event. What made this year's race even more special to me was that I set a new women's course record and set a PR in a time of 7:43:10. Although it isn't the fastest 50 mile time for a woman, I am still happy and grateful for it, especially after having an achilles injury since November.

The race got off to a rocky start, as I quickly realized that I had accidentally brought a pair of my "special" Death Valley Double Crossing underwear. What makes them so special is that i had to cut out the underwear section around 200 miles during my double crossing, to help eliminate chafing. In a remote desert, it isn't a problem. but in a race with dozens of competitors and traffic, it is. Fortunately I had remembered to bring a pair of hot pink leopard print underwear, which I ended up wearing for 50 miles.

Here is a picture of my "lucky" underwear for the 2010 Run With An Angel 50 mile Ultra-Marathon!
