Good luck with your planned 3hr run.

Do you have a nutritional approach for it?

Nice!

3-hour run tomorrow.

This is fairly new territory for me. I haven't run this far in 13 years. Only twice have I ever run for 3 hours at a time.

I'll be bringing an extra set of clothes, extra socks in case I need to change mid-race, fruits, water, bandages for nipples if I have to wear a shirt, sunscreen if need be, lotion, etc.

I feel like I'm going camping or something!

This run falls on my vegan anniversary. I begin my 18th year as a vegan tomorrow.

Looking to cover 15-20 miles during the 3-hour timed, charity run.

Loading up on rice, apples, pineapple, oranges, bananas, etc.

Look forward to seeing how you go Robert, should be able to get close to 20 miles if you keep at a good, steady pace. All the best, hope you get some nice sunny weather as well MF.

I planned to knock out 15-20 miles. Turns out I managed to run 22.5 miles in 3 hours!

From my Facebook updates:

Update: On the first day of my 18th year as a vegan, I competed in a 3-hour timed race today. With a full 1-mile kick at the end, I won the race by 8 seconds and set a new course record. Feeling pretty good. Thank you for all your support. I've never done anything like this before and it was a rewarding experience.

and

I genuinely feel bad for the runner who came in 2nd today. He ran a near flawless race, leading essentially the whole race, only to be passed in the final 50 meters. He was seconds away from winning and setting a new course record. If we competed against each other often, he'd probably beat me 9 out of 10 times. But not today. Not on my vegan anniversary. He's clearly a better runner, but today I was able to tolerate a lot of pain and somehow pushed myself across the finish line first, running 22.5 miles or so in 3 hours. The pain I went through is nothing compared to the pain abused animals endure. My pain was meaningless, but my experience was meaningful. Thank you to the organizers, volunteers, runners and friends who came out to the event today, and for the gracious 2nd and 3rd place winners. I'm grateful for today's experience. Thank you.


Thanks for checking in and thanks for all the support before the race. I sincerely appreciate it!

Took it easy today :)

Here's a shot with myself, Austin (who won the 24-hour race) and Robert. Vegans for the win! Literally!
