    The 9 Hours for 9 lives ultramarathon was held at the Victor Apple Farm near Victor, NY to raise money for providing local veterinary care for stray cats. The course was a 1.7 mile hilly loop around the apple farm and vicinity that seemed more like a 5K loop with the hills. The surface was mainly mowed grass, but it was packed down where the farm machinery drove around the orchard, so it was actually a pretty smooth surface. This was the first year for the race, so there were only 25 runners. The weather was nice, but it did get just a little bit warm in the afternoon, but not excessively hot. My goal was to run 50K, which I thought would be easy with 9 hours to do it in, but the hills said otherwise. I had to do 18+ loops to get to 50K, but with less than an hour to go, I only had 16 loops completed. I picked up the pace a little, and managed to finish 18 loops that totaled 30.6 miles with about 20 minutes to spare. Only completed laps counted, so I wasn’t able to get to 31 miles. So, although I was disappointed not to make my goal, I still managed to finish as the third place male overall. Aid station food was mainly snack food items, but a good selection of liquids were available for hydration. The finisher award was made of wood, but due to the small number of runners, awards were only given to the first place male and female runners. Hourly drawings were also held for door prizes for those that were running on the course. There was one nice view of the hills to the west at the high point of the course, otherwise it was typical farm scenery.

    I did enjoy my run in the country in upstate NY. It reminded me quite a bit of where I grew up in western Oregon.
