iRunFar coverage of the 2012 Transvulcania ultra in Spain > what an awesome race with a stacked field & excellent coverage. There were/are also a couple other ultras this weekend as well: Ice Age 50 (which it sounds like Zach Bitter dominated), Massanutten & the Zion 100. Shout out to Brian Kamm of Utah (who I ran with at the Antelope Island 50 miler) for taking 3rd place at Zion - check out the results HERE. Awesome job & not surprising, Brian is a fantastic runner! Placing in front of him were incredible runners Jay Aldous & Gary Gellin.
Light weekend for me on the running front as I'm testing out the Achilles with a long(ish) run tomorrow morning. Got in a nice 13 miler yesterday afternoon, did a nice strength session of 1 hour on the StairMaster this afternoon, mixed with a ton of stretching. Will go out tomorrow for somewhere in the 20-26 mile distance range; with a goal of practice race nutrition & hoping the Achilles & legs feel comfortable.
