My friend and fellow SKORA wearer Zach Bitter ran at the Desert Solstice 24 hour event on Saturday. 

 

He recently ran the fastest 50 miler by a North American in the last 3 decades, but he bested even that accomplishment by running 100 miles in 11:47 (7:04 per mile) for a new American 100 mile record and by running 101.66 miles in 12 hours for a new WORLD record!

Pretty crazy. I saw Pam Smith also took down the women's 100 mile world record as well. Awesome to see two performances like that in one race.

Yea I can only imagine the amount of mileage he had to be putting in to practice for that.
