The INDY 100! Indiana Trail 100 Endurance Race

5 May

Finishing a 100-mile trail race is one of the more remarkable achievements trail racers can do. Finishing after a few weeks prior completing a 150-mile challenge makes it even better. Shades of Robert Marron’s “The 300-Mile Man” Tuscobia endurance adventure.  The course at the Indiana Trail 100 are 16.6-mile loops as Paul Stofko, aka “Crazy Legs,” ultrarunner, and fitness specialist, reels them off and keeps the reader on board the entire time.

“Some Northwest Indiana residents are afraid to say it but I am not when people ask where I am from. I am from the “Region” not Chicago or “Chicagoland” born in Hammond raise in Schererville and currently reside in Chesterton. Though I have lived in Florida, Arizona and Colorado NW Indiana has a way of pulling me back. Having been involved in ultras since 1999 I have traveled to many states to follow my passion. Last year I was very excited to see that a 100 miler was in my home state of Indiana. The weather was not the best but I had a great time and set my PR at 19:09. I was looking forward to returning in 2014.

Before heading to Indiana Trail 100 miler I had to run the Potawatomi 150 miler in Pekin, IL on April 4th one more time for some redemption (see blog entry  http://paulstofko.blogspot.com/2014/04/race-report-2014-pot-150-miler.html). The weather was wonderful and course was great shape for this edition of IT 100 miler. Having never experience running two ultra only three weeks apart I knew my body was in uncharted territory. Here is a lap-to-lap account of the 100 miler. Course consists of six laps with each about 16.6 miles in distance . . . .”
