    Thinking about this race in Georgia in early December.  Is anyone familiar with it?

      Imminent Catastrophe

        Rocks, rocks and more rocks!

        I did it last year and hope to again, if I can get ready for it. It's a nice, fairly challenging race, put on by GUTS. Constant rolling hills on singletrack, nothing too steep or long and mostly runnable except for a difficult couple of miles around 23-24. What makes it hard is that most of the trail is quite rocky and/or rooty, covered by fallen leaves, so it takes a lot of concentration and effort, if you lose your focus you will pay. By the time I finished I never wanted to see another rock again. Nice aid stations and finisher schwag too. 

        Then there's always the chance of bad weather, we dodged a bullet last year as an ice storm hit just a few days later. C'mon down up!
