Two Top-Notch MiniPonies go LLLLONG

Two NETT members deserve special recognition for their accomplishments recently.

This past weekend Jason ran a very strong race at the Loco Marathon, cracking 3 hours to finish in 2:58:10 good for 7th place overall.

"The race went to plan and I am pretty psyched to go under 3," Jason said.  "The weather cooperated. It was a double loop course so the first loop I ran with a bunch of half marathoners. The second loop was quieter but I had some company. I kept a pretty consistent pace with the second loop about a minute slower than the first."

Huge congrats to Jason.

And as if that wasn't a huge enough accomplishment, another NETT runner turned the ultra running world on its head recently by running the second-fastest 100 miler in the country this year--at only 20 years old! Yes, Young Patrick shattered his own record and ran what is currently the third fastest 100 miler in the WORLD this year finishing the Ghost Train Trail Race in 13:50. For 100 miles.

If you want to hear a detailed report of the race and learn....well...everything you need to know about YP, check out this interview on the Ultrarunner Podcast If you scroll to the very bottom of the page you can play the podcast or find it on iTunes. And here's a blog post about it from Mass Ultra

We're so psyched for both of these guys since they're both kickass runners but also stand-up guys. Just what NETT is all about.
