Busy running weekend here in the Pacific Northwest.  Here are some haps.

Skagit Flats Marathon and Half Marathon was ran yesterday, 9/9.  Click Results for a complete listing of finishers.  The weather was pretty darn close to perfect.  Congrats to all who ran.

The Plain, a 100 miler finished up yesterday.  Sources said the night had both lightning strikes and rain.  Good job runners for finishing such an event.  No posted results as of yet.

24-Hour World Championship.  Mike Morton set a new US Mens record at 172 miles and Connie Gardner set a new record for US females at 149.36 miles.  Results.  Pretty impressive.

Fairhaven Runners Waterfront 15K was held on Saturday.  Check here for results.

Nice article on ultra runner and race director, Krissy Moehl, on how to run 100 miles.
