    Our very own SueIn_TN is on the registered list!

     

    I have always wanted to do this. Then I run on a hot day and remind myself how crazy it is.

     

    Sue, I bow before you. What an adventure!  Best of luck.

      After that relay performance this year, Sue is going to go for the win.  Just don't get lost this time!

        Thanks, WG. I got my feet wet by running the relay with Ben last year. Running solo and uncrewed will be a totally different race. My goal is to beat that sexist UltraSignup predicted time.

              Just looked at the ultrasignup predictions. That's NOT going to happen. They've got an uncrewed 21 y/o with one 100M finish for a win picked to be the new king in 104 hours. Faster than any of the crewed runners? Former King Juli is back and they don't even have her picked first crewed female? Former King Don Winkley is also back and they have him at the bottom of the list with no rating.

              You'll kick that 201 predictions butt. I'm calling in a vet appointment for your pups on Tuesday. Big grin

                For the uncrewed, all but one man are predicted to beat all but one woman. Right...

                 

                Hoping for a "normal" year. Don't want a crazy hot year, and while a cold summer would be nice, it wouldn't be the same experience.

                 

                Even though the registration end date was last Dec, you can still sign up.

                    She can't do that. It would make her a supported runner. They have all sorts of unusual rules. I can't even offer her a glass of  water when she comes thru town but she can accept the kindness of strangers.

                      I'm so not prepared but Laz, sadistic man that he is, is encouraging me to stick with it. There will be a tracking sheet with twice daily updates. I'll post the link when I find it.
                        www.tinyurl.com/volstate2014 is the tracking sheet. We check-in with our locations at 7am/7pm. The solo runners start on Thursday, a two day head start over the relay teams. Would like to finish ahead of them but the Taylor team is made of 4 fast guys. It's going to take them about two days to finish...

                          Good luck, Sue! I'm looking forward to watching your progress.

                            My friend Becky who ran last year (screwed) is running again this year.  I told her to look for you.
