Reaching 1,243 in 2008 -- one day, one week, one mile at a time.

So, in pursuit of people to run with, I ended up going on a trail run a few months ago, and had a great time. There are some trails within short driving distance of my house and I have a coworker who is an adventure racer so runs trails regularly. She told me about the race below, which is the Pineland Farms 25k. See clumsily attached link:
Some background. I ran a HM in October in 1:46:31 after two good months of training, and one spotty month. Since October, my training has been lackluster (see log), but I'm ramping up right now, and this race isn't until Memorial Day. I'm thinking to train for a HM on May 10th, and I think that doing both is doable - but I'm wondering how to mix trails in before the HM date and how much I can expect my training to carry over to a race that is 2.2 miles longer and on a different surface...
So, yes, thoughts, encouragement, anything?
