Title:12th Annual Fat Ass 50km - Illinois Version
Date:Sunday January 14th, 2007
Author:Bob Rehn
Race Director: Bob Rehn
In the days leading up to the Fat Ass 50 the weather forecast was anything but encouraging, with snow and ice promised. The night before the run we did get a little rain which quickly turned to ice but not enough to create slick roads and 46 runners journeyed to McNabb to enjoy the camaraderie that has become a hallmark of this run.

Bill Thom and Don Frichtl ran together for the first two loops and then Bill pulled ahead on the final loop to finish first in a time of 4:11:42. Kathleen Yarger ran a steady pace and finished first among the women in 5:18:53. There were 14 runners completing the 50Km distance.

I encourage people to come and run as many miles as they would like to, so we had distances run of Paul Kelly's 26 miles down to my granddaughter Megan and her friend Paige's 2 miles. Despite the foreboding forecast it was a great day, it wasn’t too cold, the roads were free of ice but the ice on the trees in the woods and on the pine trees at the Christmas tree farm made for a beautiful setting.

Thanks to all who came and ran and to everyone who helped in any way. Already looking forward to next year, which will be the 13th edition.
