        Uh, make that the 50k, if at all. The ankle.

          I'm signed up for the 50M but may go down to the 50K depending on my knee.  I tweaked it at Ice Age and had to walk the last 5 miles.  Still hurts a little at times.  I'm planning for a training 35mile run next weekend and will make a final decision based on how that run goes.

            BOO!

             

            We're down to Gumbee representing the Maniacs/RAers then!

             

            (I traded Tahoe for a 50k nighttime double.... run all night on 7/15-16 in Kansas, run all night on 7/16-17 in Texas. 100k. Weee)

             

               Sorry to hear about the ankle, Russ. Hoping for your speedy recovery.

              El Scorcho Cinco? This will be my first time not signed up for El Scorcho.

              When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

              xor


                Yes.  I was doing even numbered El Scorchos (Dos and Cuatro), but I need to visit the folks.  So Cinco it is.

                   Another one I've wanted to do.

                    It's a cute idea to run all night on the hottest day of the year, but it is mostly sidewalk, 3.1x10 loops.  Just FYI.

                      I'm in for the 50m.  Need to get a plane ticket still.  Looking forward to it.

                        Just because I lived in Arlington for a long time. I think I'd rather do Tahoe.

                              Curious if anyone has run the 50 previously.

                               

                              How is the course and the aid station support?

                                10 days... not that I'm counting.
