My third running of the Pajama Romp came after two weeks of vacation; as usual, was really fun time. There were quite a few of the usual faces there and I met a few new people. Before we got started, there was a ceremony to induct Phil McCarthy into the Broadway Ultra Society Hall of Fame. Congrats to Phil on this and all his accomplishments! Read More

I had this event on my calendar as a 6-hour, which I think it usually is? When I got the registration info, it was for either a 40k or a 40-miler.

27.7 miles completed

I had high hopes for this event this year, thinking I may have learned some good lessons last year. I really really wanted to run past 29 miles (two more loops), but once again I didn’t make it past 28.
