I started my ultra racing season at the Rock The Ridge 50 mile in NY this year after a couple local FKT runs in the Blue Hills south of Boston (Skyline Trail) and eastern Connecticut (Narragansett trail). Last year I ran 6:18 at Rock the Ridge, and I was hoping to bring that down into the low 6 hour range. I had a consistent race, and managed to run 7:10 pace for 5:58 on a course with about 6k of climb. I wore Road X 255’s for Rock the Ridge, and my Oroc 340’s for both of the FKT’s, as well as a couple of other interesting runs that I’ll be posting soon.
