JFK 50 Mile Ultra 2014 Summary

Nov. 30th 2014

The 52nd Annual JFK 50 Mile Ultramarathon was on Saturday November 22, 2014. It was my 6th JFK 50 (see previous year’s summaries: 201320112010, 2009, 2008).

After each out and back you returned to the Start/Finish area which also provided aid.

JFK 50 Mile Ultra 2011 Summary

Nov. 22nd 2011

The 49th Annual JFK 50 Mile Ultramarathon was this past Saturday November 19, 2011. It was my 4th consecutive JFK50 (see previous year’s summaries: 2010, 2009, 2008). This year’s training approach resulted in a course PR by 38 minutes over last year.

Preparation:

Preparation this year was very different than in previous years. My training for this event began way back in May when I started a 3-4x/week core strength training program. The main focus was core strength, but I also did a lot of overall strength training. The core training consisted of exercises like
