July 14, I ran Get Your Butt Kicked at Route 66 (State Park, Eureka, Mo), a 6 - hr event that started at 6 pm. There were 2 different loops we could run . I ran 16, 2.4 mi loops and 9, 0.33 mi loops at the end for a total 41.7 mi. Overall about 8:30 pace. I ran 8 min for about first 26 miles and then gradually slowed. 2nd overall of 93 and 1st in Masters age group. I was hoping at least 42 miles so I guess I got my butt slightly kicked. We really got lucky with the weather. We had rain before the race and during which kept temperature in the 70s. Originally was supposed to be 91 at start. My first time running this format and I really enjoyed it. Tough to keep moving!
