QUOTES
Brad Hinton -
I moved into the lead for the masters title after the big climb at mile 25, I was feeling like junk and looking for some motivation to keep chasing the leaders. Well, I didn't settle and moved up into 4th at mile 39. Jason Lantz got back to me at mile 45 and we had 5k slugfest to the finish where he beat me by a single stride. I ended up in 5th. It's funny to think that not having the inside track on the last left turn with 40 yards to go in a 50 MILE ultra marathon would make a difference, but it did.

As distance runners we seldom, if ever quit. But we do make these subtle agreements with ourselves and settle for less than our very best. "I wasn't going to keep pushing, it wouldn't move up in the placing" "I just couldn't hang with these guys". "This is my day off". "I need to back off a bit a get my legs back under me".

I can say that I have never been more satisfied with my effort. Here's to the perfect effort and the maturity to live with the results
