Paul, I didn't doubt you - if there's anyone who could do that kind of thing, it would be you. I'm so excited right now, that I can barely barely even type. I couldn't even remember my password to login I was so stoked.

Congratulations to all who took part, supported and made this event a magical thing to hear about.

Have a beer guys...you deserve it!

Thank you all SO much for everything! Especially to James Peters for holding the event and for hosting the website that motivated me to come out here! I also need to thank james for egging me on through the dark hours of the night and of course keeping track of my distance! Forfeiting sleep just to help me stay on track! WOW! Thanks the Barefoot Ted for setting a hurdle for me for coming out to say hi! Thanks to everyone else for the kinda motivation, conversation and helping me with all my stuff... I mean everyone! And lets not forget Rachael who assited my eating and drinking and for biking 300 km to look after my sorry self!!

You're all beautiful people.
I'm going to try to get more sleep now that I've filtered out some more of the brown stuff!

I'm continuing to crunch Paul's numbers based off the GPS and manual records kept overnight, interspersed with some awesome pictures of dragons and monsters that Gavin drew.   There will likely be some adjusted number for the record, coming up soon.

I also have lap counts for other skaters but I'd like to confirm what they thought they rode and especially whether they did 1 or 2 full 50-milers on the Burke, as I'm not sure with everyone!  

Please shoot me any additions and corrections to my email address  (pavedwave@comcast.net)

James: 18 laps + 90 burke - 140 miles + night support
Will Best: 26 laps + 50 on burke - 122.8m + night support
Andrew: 21 laps + 50 on burke - 108.8m
Scott: 26 laps + 28 burke miles - 100.8m + night support
Rain: 14 laps + 50 on burke - 89.2m
Jonathan Boles - 50m
Dustin Howie - 50m
William: 11 laps - 30.8m
Ariel: 9 laps - 25.2m
Jomar: 9 laps - 25.2m
Gavin: 7 laps - 19.6m
Amelia: 7 laps - 19.6m
Sophie: 5 laps - 14m
Rachael:  1 million laps!

Nat, I had all but sworn off Navy Seal Rain Ultraskates myself, since the one last year with Eric when I clocked 208 miles -- which was also all push.   (and ironically, my longest one to date)  So my wife thought it was pretty bizarre that we intended to push through this one.  But the momentum was there, Paul was in town, and nothing could stop this freight train!!

The Seattle side of the Burke-Gilman was dry and sunny, but once over to the Eastside, the trail was completely soaked.    For Paul it was never an issue really, being a "pusher" he was going to go for it no matter what.   As for pumping, I had to decide whether pushing through a couple hours of this would be worth it in the end.   I figured the rest of the day could get better...and it seemed to be working out just fine.

Until the return trip to the Eastside, right around 65 miles. That's when I was pumping blissfully along straight into these black clouds, only to be pounded by rain and HAIL half and hour later.    



Still, that was a brief storm.  Things just had to get better.  And they did!  By 8-9 p.m.,  the lake path was completely dry and I was still fully on track to at least match Ted's 242 and stay close to Paul.   Then... the final DUMP at 9:30, which stayed pretty steady throughout the night.  

That's when I decided to become a part of the support crew   Very Happy

james
50 miles on the burke, montlake->gasworks->marymoor->montlake. nearly all push too.

going to go for a roll on the trail again maybe next weekend once i've recovered. gotta get into shape trying for 75+ next time.

sucks that there was hail (i was done before it) but great to see such a turn out!

I did 52 on the Burke. (had to go back to get my water after about a mile in). It comes out to 110.8.  This was such an awesome event! Best one I've ever been too!!! Paul was awesome!

I think you're confusing the word awesome with the meaning of sleep drunk.

when my life has calmed down a bit and the baby is here and we are in nz, i'd like to have a go at getting over 200. 150 wasnt too bad and i know there is more in the tank.
I'd probably stick with push unless i could find somewhere like dorney where ldp is truly king.

Just thinking about pauls skate blows my mind. I can stick to 10mph easily but the times come down because of the rest. I think i could probably up the speed to 12mph but then the endurance of 24 hours comes in. I did 150 in just under 16 hours and we had a huge break of about an hour.
my mind boggles with what both Ted and paul have done.

just amazing, but it just makes me realise just quite how addictive skating distance is.

i love it.

oh, im getting some serious mile on the mermaid n virages. best so far is over 10 miles with only the starting pushes. wonderful deck, wonderful trucks.

The lap counting was not quite up to snuff, so we did a combination of GPS records and my manual tracking from the log book starting at midnight until 7:20 a.m. when Paul stopped.   Based on Paul and I coming to our best estimates, then two simple and pre-determined factors of our Seattle course, namely:

1. The Burke-Sammamish and Stone Way daytime = 102 miles
2. The Greenlake loop = 2.8 miles

We came to the conclusion of 102 miles + 53 laps, or 250.4 miles total.

Once again, Congrats Paul!!!

Wow thanks again guys!
I seem to already be forget the pain and I'm already dreaming of coming back.
I got to beat that Paul guys distance record!

I actually had tons of fun! and it was so rewarding! I love the concept of a ultra marathon via skateboard!
True endurance longboarding.
Something I'm going to try to improve at for sure!

Can't thank you guys enough (especially James and Rachael haha)
James you made this happen, you're a genius!

I pray to see you rogue but don't stress over it!
