Massanutten Mountain Trails 100 Miler

We have a lot of envelope-pushers in the Dojo. But even in this crew, Barry Hauptman exists in a very narrow part of our bell curve. Here's a quick recap of Barry's 100 mile race from this weekend:

Barry finished MMT in 29:47.   He was 51st overall and reports that this was the most difficult race he has ever done - more difficult even than Leadville a few years ago.  It's a very technical trail to begin with - lots and lots of rocks, and one Hill after another with very few flat, easily runnable sections - and it was made more difficult by the large amount of rain on Friday - very slippery in lots of places, particularly the downhills.  Barry is exhausted but satisfied - looking forward to another 100 in a month. 

Congrats Barry!!! Incredible job.
