    It is starting to look like we will actually make it to Sturgis next year for their big biker party, (Aug 4 - 10)  Big grin  while there I would love to throw in a half so I can check another state off my map.  Any suggestions?   Or is it possible that it is just too hot there that time of year so no races available?

      We still have races when we're "hotter than Death Valley" (the CASA HM last year).    Here's one for the 10th of August...  http://www.bhrctrails.com/mcgovern-hill

        thanks!  I will have to tag this so I can figure things out.

          You're welcome, I hope it works out for you.  Here's the fb page for the runner's club that puts on the trail series (that the HM is part of).

              Smile so glad to 'know' another biker who runs!!  I try to find races along some rides that I take.  HMs are my favorite too.  First time running a HM during a ride was a very 'sore' experience (some 10 yrs ago) because I had to ride back same day, a 2 hr ride normally (on interstate) but it took me almost 4 hrs due to many 'rest stops' to stretch and walk, and took a different route (longer but more scenic which is the point of riding, right?).  It was worth it though, LOL!!  I prefer trail running' and would have loved to run in S.D. but business has me traveling to the SW instead during that time.  DH and I have been to the rally many times over the years (he has family in Rapid). Expect some humidity, and hilly trail but the area is spectacular, with many die-hard trail runners!! I'm jealous already.  Wishing you a safe ride to Sturgis (from MA?? WOW!!), and good luck on the race!!

                thanks.  Most likely won't ride there - too much time off from work for that but we are looking into taking a train - it is about 1 1/2 day ride and I thought that would be pretty cool.
