Capital RunWalk was well represented at The Boogie Races on Saturday night, in rural Ellerbe, NC. Joey "Ultraman" Anderson was attempting to run 100 miles (running the first 50 solo then the second 50 with the full Boogie starting at 6:00 p.m. Charles Akers was out to run a fast time in the 50 and Lisa H. and I were there to enjoy the half Boogie (or marathon).
As it turns out, Joey and his friend, Amy, were bitten BADLY by a dog after only 1 mile Saturday morning. Though he finished his first 50 miles before 6:00 p.m., he called it quits after a total of 62 miles and decided to visit the emergency room to get fixed up (and some bags of IV fluid).
Charles went out at a pretty good clip, but called it a day after 37 hilly miles. If I recall correctly, he just ran a long, hard 50k two weeks ago.
Lisa and I (speaking for myself here) had a much more relaxed evening delighting in the fact that we only had to run two and a half loops, and only climb "the HILL" twice. Lisa took Joey to the E-room and I hung out to wait for my Dad to finish his 77th marathon (or longer) race.
Good times were had by all, or by some...
