      Muddling through

        I thought I'd already posted here, but I don't see it. Must be old age setting in.

         

        First ultra ever - NC 24 12-hour run Sep 21 (at least I hope to exceed the marathon distance)

        2014 Goals: Run first trail ultra, first 100K, and see what I can do in a 24-Hour race

          3/16/13 - Georgia Death Race (Georgia)

           

          Darn it! My father retired in Blue Ridge a few years ago and I can never find races close him. This looks perfect. I wish it fit in my schedule. I have hiked the entire AT through Georgia (and the Amicalola approach trail), and I know those trails are very tough and relentless.

            The Death Race filled up before I even saw it.  Will have to pay attention to it next year.

             

            There is a Double Top 100 race in early March in the Cohutta mountains which has not filled yet.

              Unfortunately, I'm probably an idiot.

               

              I signed up for Umstead 100 for April 6, 2013.  The race director of Georgia Death Race is a friend of mine, and, when he announced the Georgia Death Race, I initially declined, because GDR is only three weeks before Umstead.  A short time later, though, I succumbed to the hype and the excitement.  I am now signed for for both. 

               

              Georgia Death Race is only 60 miles (in that ultramarathon loosely-approximate sense), but it includes over 30,000 feet of elevation change.  Everyone who runs that race is going to be totally destroyed for at least a week or two. 

               

              I am confident in my ability to make a showing for both races, but I'm probably shoving my chances for a sub-24-hour Umstead under the bus.

                1/12  Bandera 100k  Bandera, TX            (They are holding my very, very, very favorite race on my birthday!  What a present!)

                 

                 

                On a suggestion, to see what Ultra running is all about, I will be volunteering at one of the aide stations in January.  Looking forward to the experience.

                Be careful of the toes that you step on, because they may be connected to the ass that you have to kiss.

                    I heard through the grapevine that there may be an additional 50 spots opening for the Georgia Death Race. Will keep you posted.
