      In. I couldn't believe it, but it is $25 cheaper than last year.

        third time the charm, I hope.  Still, $340 for a race is a lot.

          I wonder why they have the Glacial Trail 50K on the list and not the Glacial Trail 50 Mile?

          Retired 1/1/13 ... Tired of being broken and fat  ... New goal 12/29/15 - To be able to enjoy running 4-5 hours through the woods again in 2016.

            Looks to me like it's the 50 miler. No 50k is a qualifier.

              But, WTF am I going to do with a running skirt?

                Burn it, I hope. I picked men's shorts. I felt kinda pukey when I saw that option.

                  Yeah, my bet is that this is simply a misprint.

                   

                  I'll take someone's skirt.

                   

                  Edit: wait, that looks worse than I intended for real.

                    I suspect I'm too small for the men's shots. Ditto the unisex small jacket.

                     

                    Could burn the skirt, but it's plastic ... might kill me.

                     

                    (As if any of this is likely to become an issue!)

                      When I did the lottery - The only choice from the drop down was Glacial Trail 50k.  The list of qualifying races elsewhere had the 50 miler.  I did send then a note to bring to their attention, so maybe they have corrected already.

                       

                      I figure I would pull a WG - Sign up when I really do not want to run and anger the running gods so they pick me in the lottery and punish me by making me figure it out.

                        It is Glacial Trail 50 Miler ... Now.

                         

                        I was looking at how everyone is linked to their ultra-signup stats - That is nice.  But what I noticed is you could run a 23 hour Wester states and pick upa 60% score for it.

                          It's going to be a 93-miler this time.

                            I figure it is a race like Boston - Something to do once and experience ... unless I screw it up like Leadville and then I might have to do it a second time ~ Maybe when I am older and wiser ... like 65+ YO

                              I really, really want to do it. I just wish I had more time after a super long race in May so I can recover just a bit. If I end up not getting in, and getting another ticket in next years lottery, it will probably be for the best. Either way, I want that sub-24 buckle.
