Race Report: Devil Dog 100-miler

by Lou Donofrio

On December 4th, I raced the Devil Dog 100-miler in Prince William Forest Park, Virginia, having also finished 4th in the race in 2019.  

This year was warm during the day, and I was comfortable running in shorts and a t-shirt. However, racing a trail 100-miler in December meant that most of the race would be in the dark.  Once the sun went behind the hills, I added layers, and ran with a head lamp and a waist light. The added lumens were key to navigating the rooty, leaf-covered single-track trails in the dark.  

I finished 8th overall in 24:21:11, enjoyed another buckle, ate, slept, went to work, and began planning for the next training block.

Happy trails!
