JFK 50m

JFK 50miler was today. A classic race. For those who may not have been following, Strider just smoked a 7:45 50 miler. Incredible! A few shots from his Twitter https://twitter.com/#!/dibohn

Having run the JFK 50, that is one impresive time for the course.

Wow, amazing but not surprising. Way to go David!
next up:


This broken wing will fly again
One fine day
This blackbird's mute gonna sing again
One fine day

So all you sinners come out
And all you drunkards crawl out
Come into the light of one fine day

Just talked to David a few minutes ago while he was sipping a beverage and he was thrilled. Sounds like it was perfect weather and he nailed it. Very cool.

Wow, number 16 was a 50 yo lady who ran less than 8 min miles. OMG.

Strider you did great, but I was looking to see what my own gender did.

Unreal! An AC podium finish in the biggest ultra in NA! When is the autograph signing party?

Waiting for the RR!
