In October 2021 I ran two 50k Ultramarathons. The first was the Stump Jump 50k Trail Run near Chattanooga, TN. The second was my "hometown" Florida race, the Gate2Gate Trail Run held at San Felasco Hammock Preserve State Park.

Boom! This race has a real shotgun start.

I used the same fueling strategy and equipment that I did for the Stump Jump, including my Topo Terraventure 2 shoes which I love. Without the elevation and stairs to deal with, I intended to run the entire race. With the exception of a few stops to refill water bottles, etc. I succeeded at running the whole 50k distance.

I'm very happy with my 2nd male overall finish. I was hoping for about 10 minutes faster, but 4 hours 41 minutes is just fine.

To celebrate I went to Big Mill's in Gainesville, which has THE BEST chili dogs around and delicious soft serve ice cream, too...
