      I ran the 25K and had a blast - at least for the first 12 miles until the tank went dry.  The course was great and the Ledges were spectacular.  But the frozen footprints meant even the smooth stretches were not.  Coming from the flatlands, I also wasn't ready for all the ups and downs and my quads are pretty sore today.  The race management and staging were great.  Overall a great event and I hope to be back next year.

      PRs in my 5th decade: 5K - 19:56 10K - 43:45 10 M - 1:14:12 Half Mary - 1:39:27 Full Mary - 3:34:12 (BQ)

          Lloyd - Again it was a great event.  Thanks to you and all the volunteers.  My only complaint is that the Winking Lizard didn't open until 11:00 - too late for me to stick around.  Maybe next year you can get them to open a bit earlier.

            The answer for your problem is to run the 50k next year. That should put you in the lizard right on time!

              Why didn't I think of that?

                Bumping last year's thread because registration for the 2012 event opens at 12:00 p.m. ET on January 3.

                 

                This is the first year we're using online registration only, so I'm not sure how quickly it will fill. It shouldn't. If anyone is concerned about not being able to sign-up right at Noon, let me know and I will ensure your spot.

                 

                Happy trails!
