Pistol Ultra 100K Race in Knoxville

Maybe many of you have never been to an Ultra Race.  Well, this year was our second to attend, watching our Son, Michael 2nd to run.  Last Knoxville race was three years ago, three years after he had had his colon removed because of Chrone’s Disease.  This year was different, as he had time goals.  He set three PR this race and cut his time by 30 minutes.  He ran the entire race without once even sitting down.  We are so thankful and proud that he feels well, trains well, and has the drive to complete such an event!  Cannot imagine running for over 13 hours!  I run an hour and 20 minutes several times a week and that is my limit at this point.  I have posted a few images of this experience Michael has shared with us.  Held on St. Patrick’s Day…there was a lot of green!  A very colorful race, indeed!
