John & Jennifer decided to run the Lost Souls Ultra Marathon this September. They did the 50k, but there's also the 100k and 100 mile runs. They started off really well, running ultra fast, so we were hoping they would have no trouble beating their time goal. However, about 3/4 of the way in, Jennifer developed a serious IT band issue and was forced to walk for quite a while before she could run again. About 2/3 of the way in John developed terrible issues with his stomach and couldn't eat anything for ages. Not a good situation when you have to run for 7-8 hours.

Fortunately, despite these setbacks both were able to rally, and came in under the 8 hour time goal they had set. Yay! And both liked the experience enough to sign up for next year's race as well.

See how good they looked at the end?

And this is what they got for finishing:
