2010 Plain 100 DNF Report by Rob Lahoe

2010 Plain Photo Rob Lahoe returned from his trip to Washington and submitted a great run report on his attempt at the Plain 100. His photo at left is a site I never saw the year I attempted Plain. When we were on this same peak, we were in almost white-out conditions. It just looks like a nice summer day by this photo. 

I must also take this time to defend my position where Rob says I lied about a particular climb. I stand by what I originally said. 

Otherwise it is a great report and even though I can feel Rob's disappointment, as in all 100 mile runs, the personal learning and growth makes it all worthwhile. Great job Rob! Click here to read Rob's report. 

Get out there and run!

Aloha, Bob

Great run Rob. Fantastic story.

What a fantastic report. I could really feel your pain. You passed me up near the false summit and looked great. Our day ended at Deep Creek. I was limping pretty good with shin pain too. The plain course is tough on shins I guess. It amazes me how similiar your preparation was to my 2007 first plain attempt, down to the use of the 60csx. I would have finished last year if I would have had a bit less confidence and brought my gps on loop 2. Wish I could have talked to you more.

Rob,

Great report. Yeah, fast starts are ridiculous. You had the race nailed. That last section must have been tremendous. Next time you can sail through it with 'fond' memories. Great run, great accomplishment. Aloha

Awesome Rob! I know it hurts and words wont make it better, but chin-up anyway! This was a gripping report, and I loved reading it. Thanks!

Rob

Ha Ha Bob! I was wondering how you'd take that. Although I may have thrown a few naughty words your way at the time, it was all in good fun!

Sean

Awesome race report Rob! Extremely well written and it gave me a real sense of the course. You know you'll do this again. You've got it down now!
