Catoctin 50k 2009 Addendum arch-nemesis the digital bathroom scale says 155 lbs. before the race, maybe due to all the hot-and-sour soup and other salty foods I've been eating in subconscious anticipation of electrolyte loss during the Catoctin 50k. My weight is down to 152 afterwards, even though I eat a veggie burger and drink a couple of pounds of water and soda after finishing.
