    Getting off course is part of the game and some get off more than others. I almost took a serious wrong turn at UROC yesterday if it werent for Scott and I running close together to figure things out.

    Scott and I ran together quite a long stretch of the race and he said he may have gone out too hard. For my part, I just hit a brick wall at mile 30 that I knew I couldnt overcome; too much energy diverted lately to other resources than hard running energy. I knew I would either succeed or implode; too bad for me it was the latter.

    Dave James goes out hard and pushes a fine line, but he wins much more often than drops. I like his bold style; it keeps things fun for the front of the pack and for the spectators.

    I would recommend UROC to anyone. It has pavement for sure, it is a very beautiful course, has loads of fine singletrack and a vertical that will expose your weaknesses. Gill and Frannie did a bang-up job first year UROC and the race has a great future.

    Thanks for the coverage, Bryon- my family said they found it super reliable and useful. As always, you and the iRF team do a great job.

    I had some hesitation about UROC course (mainly all the road) beforehand, but really enjoyed it. I think Eric Grossman said it best when he said the course exposes everyone's weakness- the trail/vert guys may struggle with the fast road miles, and the fast road guys get beat up by the vert and fair amount of technical singletrack. You have to be ready for all of it. And I'd agree with Dave- I'd recommend it to anyone next year. Hopefully the field grows each year, with more and more runners of all caliber. Great, tough race.
