Race #342 – The Scream! Half Marathon – Jonas Ridge, NC – 07/16/16

2016-the-scream-medalOne of the few half marathons you’ll find in the month of July, The Scream is a race I look forward to every year. I’ve missed it a couple times — once because of an injury and once because of the weather — but I’ve been registered for it every time it’s been run. This time around the weather was better than in any of the previous years. It was near 100% humidity but the temperature was fine although maybe just a little warm for some folks.

 

This year was my slowest time ever for The Scream, which I expected, but I was just a little disappointed that I didn’t finish in under 1:40:00, instead finishing in 1:40:55, not terrible but a couple minutes slower than on what I would think is a harder course at Downhill at Dawn last month.

 

One of my favorite things about this race other than the 9 miles or so of downhill running is that it draws people from all over, especially the Western part of North Carolina, so there are a lot of friends I only see occasionally and some that I just see at this particular race. Speaking of friends, one of the finest people I know, Matt Longworth, set a course record this year with a blistering time of 1:11:41, and his girlfriend Carolyn Yang, who is also a speedster, finished 2nd overall and 1st female with a time of 1:21:19.

 

As always, the logistics for this race could be considered a nightmare. You park at Brown Mountain Beach then ride a bus to the starting line in Jonas Ridge maybe 15 or 20 miles away, then after finishing the race in the middle of nowhere you catch the bus again to ride 5 miles or so back to where the cars are parked. Oddly, to me this has become a part of the race that I like. It’s a nice bus ride both ways that gives you time to relax and enjoy the scenery and visit with some friends who are also on the bus.

 

On arrival back to Brown Mountain Beach, there’s plenty of food and the awards are held after food is served. The food has varied from year to year. This year it was barbecue and it was delicious and plentiful.

Race #303 – The Scream! Half Marathon – Jonas Ridge, NC – 07/18/15

2015-ScreamLogoAlthough I’ve been registered for The Scream! every year since it began five years ago, I’ve missed the past two years, once because of an injury and once because of bad weather (I’m picky like that). This year the weather was beautiful so I didn’t have an excuse, so I met up with running buddy Dianne Allen at 4 a.m. and we made our way through the crooked mountain roads to the ghost town of Mortimer and the Brown Mountain Beach resort, which was the parking area and setting for the post-race food and awards.

 

The logistics are about as complicated as they could possibly be for a race, but the organizers do a great job of letting you know where you should be so it works out fine. After you park you take a bus to Jonas Ridge, which is at the top of the mountain. After 2 or 3 miles of running the paved roads in the Jonas Ridge community the race course then goes downhill for the next 9 miles or so down an unpaved road. Running downhill for that distance seems like it would be easy, but it’s really not. I found myself wishing it would level off, but when it finally flattened out I felt like I was trying to run uphill.

When I finally reached the finish line I was already feeling my calves tightening up, and as I write this the following Friday morning (almost a week later) I’m still not completely recovered. I’m actually pretty happy with my time of 1:37:49 since it’s my fastest half marathon this year. It was just a year ago on a similar course (Downhill at Dawn) that I ran my fastest half marathon ever (1:29:25) but it seems like age is finally catching up with me so I try to keep reminding myself that the important thing is to keep enjoying the fact that I’m able to run at all, regardless of how fast or slow.

Race #184 – The Scream! Half Marathon – Jonas Ridge, NC – 07/14/12

It was the second running of The Scream! Half Marathon, which is a point-to-point race that begins in the North Carolina mountains in the town of Jonas Ridge and ends about 2,000 feet below in Mortimer, which as far as I can tell isn’t really a town but more like a small, sparsely populated community that might or might not be found as the smallest dot on a map.

I ran it last year and it was a lot of fun and the only half marathon I know of anywhere in the Carolinas in the month of July. Since I try to run at least one half marathon every month it’ll probably be on my schedule for as long as they have it in July or until I give up on the half-marathon-a-month business. Incidentally, this was my 10th half marathon of 2012 and my 40th half marathon since I began running almost four years ago. My reasoning has been that if I run a lot of half marathons I’ll get used to them and it won’t be a big deal, and while that plan seems to have worked in some ways it’s still pretty exhausting to run a hard 13.1 miles as often as I do.

The biggest drawback of this race is the logistical nightmare of getting there. The easiest part is getting from the start line to finish line — you just run the race from the beginning to the end. More difficult is getting to the starting line. You can pay an extra fee (I think it was $12) to ride a shuttle bus up or have somebody drive you up or just drive up yourself then go back and get your car after the race. It’s definitely worth the extra 12 bucks to take the shuttle, which I did. Last year runners were able to park at or near the finish line, but this year there were some last-minute problems with the local authorities that changed the plan to having everybody park 8 miles away at Brown Mountain Beach so all of the post-race activities were held there instead of the race finish. It actually worked out okay though and everybody was able to catch the shuttle buses back for post-race food and the awards ceremony.

I’m not much for carpooling. I’m well aware that my incessant blabbering, back-seat driving, and multiple other personality quirks are capable of driving people bananas, so usually it’s just Linda and I traveling to races together alone. After 33 years of marriage she’s adapted well and, although she hasn’t mentioned it, it’s a lot of trouble to start off with somebody new so she seems resigned to keep me along with all of my peculiarities. Despite my hesitancy to carpool, some friends and I from the Gaston County Runners, (Rick, Shashi, and Matt) decided to ride up together since it’s a long haul on a desolate and winding road and none of us could take our families along anyway. We met at 4:00 a.m. just to be sure we’d make it for the shuttle bus at 6:30 and we were among the first to arrive. It had started to rain lightly when we got there, but no more than 5 minutes after we got out of the car it was raining cats and dogs and the rain beating down on the tin roof of the empty pavilion seemed like a million tiny drums warning us of impending doom. To make matters worse, there was an intense thunderstorm with lightning striking all around us. We were lucky in that we made it to a bus before most of the lightning started, but there were plenty of other runners who had to risk life and limb to make it onto one of the buses. To make matters worse, the first two of the four shuttle buses had their air conditioning turned on instead of the heat. When I questioned bus driver #1 about it he told me they called him “The Polar Bear,” to which I responded by going to find a warm bus, which I found on the third bus, driven by a lady who was glad to accommodate the soaked runners who were lucky enough to get on bus #3 with some warmth.

After a long bus ride (20 miles maybe?) we finally arrived at the start. Thankfully it wasn’t raining on top of the mountain and it felt great to me. The temperature was in the upper 60s, which is perfect by my standards, but it turned out that the 100% humidity made things difficult for some runners, including me. Or at least I think it was the humidity that caused me to run about 4 minutes slower than I ran the same race last year. It could have just been that I’m older and in not quite as good shape as last year, but there seemed to be a general trend among those who ran it last year that their times were slower this year by several minutes. There were exceptions, of course, but of all the people I know who were there last year, the only one I know of who was faster this year was Sharon Davis, and she’s been running great for the past few months, quite a bit better than she did in 2011.

I was a little disappointed that I was over 1:36 but considering the humidity, a little lower fitness level, and recent problems with piriformis syndrome maybe it’s probably about right. Looking back at my Garmin data, it was interesting to see that in the last 2 miles I ran nearly a minute slower than I ordinarily would have with a pace of 8:14 and 8:25 in the 12th and 13th mile respectively, yet my heart rate was 168-169 in those last 2 miles, which would ordinarily keep me at a sub-7:30 pace. It’s the first time I’ve ever seen that much of a discrepancy and I’m not sure what caused it.

Race #136 – The Scream! Half Marathon – Jonas Ridge, NC – 07/16/11

The T-shirt says, The Scream! Half Marathon is “13.1 Miles of Pure Hill!” That’s not entirely true. While there are probably 8 or 9 miles of downhill that will make your quads and calves scream with delight (or possibly horror), there’s enough uphill to bring you back to reality. For me, every time we hit the small uphill sections they almost felt like huge mountains after getting used to all the downhill, but enough people passed me on those hills that I thought I might be in the minority. There’s no doubt that the huge downhill sections helped a lot of people run their fastest half marathon time ever. I cut about a minute off my Personal Record from the 2010 Little Rock Half Marathon with a time of 1:32:11, which was 1st in the 55-59 age group and 24th overall.

Honestly, I was just a little disappointed with my time since I’ve been running well lately and had dropped 10 pounds over the previous four weeks. I felt like there was a good chance for me to run in under 1:30, but as reality sinks in, whether you have some major downhill help or not, you still have to run 13.1 miles and it’s just not that easy. Possibly some of my problem was that about 11 miles of this race is run on unpaved roads. While I know that it’s supposed to be easier on the joints, I run just about 100% of the time on pavement and prefer the smoother surface. Still, the race was great fun and lived up to its expectations, and when race director David Lee asked for a show of hands on who ran a PR (Personal Record), it looked like maybe three-fourths of the runners lifted their hands.

You’d expect it to be too hot to run a half marathon in the middle of July, but that definitely wasn’t the case for this one. When we arrived at Jonas Ridge it was cold and foggy with a light rain. The temperature was probably about 58 degrees and the light rain continued to fall throughout the race, although as we came down the mountain the temperature rose a little, and at the finish it might have been 65 degrees.

I had made plans to meet up with Sharon Davis from Albemarle a couple months ago, and we had planned to both drive to the finish line then take one car to the top and leave the other at the bottom, then go back and get the other car after the race. Wow, that sounds so much easier to do than it would have been in real life. Peter Asciutto, the Vac & Dash guru, wanted to hand out some flyers to promote his upcoming half marathon/10k/5k, Run The Valley, so he offered to drive us to the top and meet us at the bottom, then return us back to the hotel where Sharon was staying in Morganton after the race. That worked out perfectly for us and saved hours of driving. By the way, Sharon ran spectacularly as always and was the 3rd overall female to cross the finish line just like she was at Hickory’s Charity Chase Half Marathon last month!

The logistics of getting to and from your car might have been the most challenging part of this race. Even if you took the bus from the finish line to the starting line, just getting to the finish line in your car to catch the bus was a challenge since the finish was several miles out a remote dirt road. I didn’t really hear any complaints though so I guess people just looked at it as part of the racing adventure.

The rain finally stopped around the time of the awards ceremony, and about 5 minutes into the awards the post-race pizza arrived. It was a little late for those who didn’t stay for the awards, but a great reward for staying. It marked the first time since my return to Weight Watchers a few weeks ago that I didn’t bother counting WW points for the day — way too depressing. It probably didn’t help matters that I got a chocolate milkshake and medium fries on the way home, or that I also ended up taking my grandson to Ben & Jerry’s before the day was over. On Sunday I’m back to fruit, veggies, and counting everything I eat, but it was nice to have a day off of the diet, even if it did mess up any weight loss I might have achieved for the week.
