Your suffer score says "Epic"! Nice effort, and congrats on the free shoes!
Great race! Neg split to boot. I don't suppose that was a USATF course? You could get free shoes with Ns on the side. http://blog.strava.com/back-half-challenge/
Yes! It was USATF certified, and I knew about the New Balance challenge ahead of time. It gave me plenty of extra motivation in the last couple of miles when I was fading and at risk of losing the negative split. I submitted the claim form on Monday, but it seems like it went into a black hole - no confirmation on the web form or email or anything. Hmm... If you're interested I wrote a race report here: http://www.runworks.com/2016/10/2016-bizz-johnson-trail-marathon-race-report/
Thanks for sharing the writeup - super fun to read!
Nice job man! That is a pretty epic run...
