First 50mi - October (Read 684 times)

    Happy to see this thread, I was about to make one of my own.  I'm looking at the Mountain Masochist Trail for my first 50 this fall. 

     

    There are two questions I have:

     

    1)  What good resources / ultra forums are out there on the internet.  I've done very little trail running and nothing beyond the marathon.  Where do you all go to read.  Is there a good magazine to subscribe to?

     

    2)  Trail shoes?  I do most of my road running in Kinvaras....somehow I don't think they will cut it on rocky trail.  I don't necessarily need a minimal shoe but I like how the kinvara rides and would be happy with something that felt similar.

    Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say, It is well, it is well with my soul.

       The pain that hurts the worse is the imagined pain. One of the most difficult arts of racing is learning to ignore the imagined pain and just live with the present pain (which is always bearable.) - Jeff
