Alumni Singlets On The Ultra-Trail

Another friend I have met through my work on the blog has been Ron Moore.  Everyone knows my admiration for Ron, even though we have never met!  Here are a few reasons for my admiration.

  • Ron was a State Champion in high school.
  • Ron was a top runner for Coach Groves while at PSU.
  • Ron toils in the top levels of Physics even while juggling a family and ultra-marathon training. 
  • Recent 8th place finish at the Barkley Fall Classic 50K 50+K.
  • Ron proudly wears his Alumni Singlet while competing in places with names such as "Rat Jaw" , "Testicle Spectacle" and "Frozen Head". (I run on a treadmill called Bob)
  • Ron could give me 20 IQ points and still be ahead of me.
  • Ron will be running his first 100-Mile race soon!  (Donate to his cause HERE)

The Finish

50K with PSU Pride!

  1. Thanks, Dave! I changed into the PSU shirt at the marathon drop bag location so I could show it for the last 9 mile loop and the home stretch (and because I could no longer stand the smell of the first shirt). Do note the math - marathon + 9 mile loop is greater than 50K - additional difficulty bonus points for this race.

    I also appreciate the link to my 100 mile everydayhero page! Let's keep the donations coming!

  2. Are there any extra bonus points available if you run 3 miles on the treadmill at 0.5% incline or turn the 2 fans off? For a friend...

  3. Once again, the Chair of the Errors and Omissions Committee needs to be stoned, drawn and quartered and hoisted on his or her own pitard.

    Ron is a PA State Champion from Pittsburgh (home of Artie Gilkes and Myron Cope). Sigh


  4. Only Kinda Sorta Pittsburgh... Not 5 Sigma Pittsburgh.

  5. Also home of Andy Warhol for what that is worth!


Thanks for commenting. Keep up the good work! (Try to mention others to encourage them to comment too!)
