Rotterdam‘s Hotel Director Jessica Schumann did well in her ultramarathon which was held last month.
She finished the 45 mile (73KM) in 9:53:12 and ended as 27th in her age group. Here is a photo from Jessica during her brutal race – well done Jessica!
As far as my race is concerned, that is scheduled for tomorrow, the 29th of June. Fingers crossed.
The National Park organization has cancelled the race permit; because of the excessive heat warning this weekend they don’t allow the race to take place in their park.
The race will now take place outside of Las Vegas – forecast calls for 120 degrees, up to 129 Fahrenheit in Death Valley….Warm enough to run 50 miles. I will let you know the outcome!
