Chasing the cavewoman

This photo was too good to pass up. It's a shot of my ultra friends Susan Donnelly and Rob Apple knocking out a 100 miler in Phoenix last weekend.

Since the race was near the festive Halloween celebration, runners were encouraged to suit up in specialized running attire.

Rob didn't buy on to the promotion, but Susan did.

Here's the way the story goes: Rob took a serious fall at home and injured his ribs, shoulder and foot. He was in rough shape going into the race.

Rob emailed and stated he wanted to stop at mile 31, but something kept him going...

He couldn't stop chasing the cavewoman.

Just when I almost succumb to the masses who try and convince me it's a crazy sport, something like this comes across my desk.

And at that moment I realize ultrarunning makes perfect sense, and all is well with the world.

Attaboy, Rob. Nice outfit, Susan.
