Maine Track Club member, Mike Brooks to run 72 hour race


I am running a 72 hour race starting Saturday the 29th and ending New
Years Day. You can learn about the race and follow my progress or lack of it
on the above website. Even if you are not interested in what I am doing you
should check out this great website. My goals are 75 miles day 1 , 70 day 2
and 56 day 3 for 201 miles. I will be very surprised if I do this. The last
time I did this race I ran 183 miles but I was younger then and did not have
a hamstring injury.
  You can also send me a message during the race and there will be a mailbox
on the course where I can pick it up. Info for this will be on the website
by race start. I hope to hear from all of you during the race. If I am
behind on my mileage be sure to send me a nasty message telling me so. This
might motivate me enough to pick up the pace.
  At midnight New Years Eve think of all the fun I am having on my third day
of circling a 500 meter track sipping champagne with my fellow runners in
the Arizona desert!
            Cheers and a Happy New Year,

MTC Roaster Run Group Blog

This is an interesting running blog.  It started in Jan 2006.  It currently has only 25 members. Interested runners can sign on to the blog and post messages and/or photos and view messages and photos which have been posted.  Sandy Walton has hosted this event for a number of years.  The Roaster Run has been very well attended event but the fact that the weekly event also has it own web site where members can also meet in cyberspace may not be widely known around the world.

See you are the races.
