Into the wild

    Hello James...I missed your arrival! Welcome, belatedly. I have a itch that is New Zealand and I intend scratching it when finances allow. There was an ultra on South Island in March sometime which appealed last year...maybe I'll get there one of these years!
    Nice to meet you..I look forward to your posts and experiences from NZ.
    I hope you haven't been affected by the terrible news from South Island.

    Shut up and run

      Welcome, James!  Sorry I didn't see your post earlier.  I echo Johnny's comment re an itch to get to New Zealand.  Come back and visit us often!

        Hello

        I've been lurking on the threads for a while and finally joined the Ultra Runner group. Last year I didn't run any marathons only ultras. (Superior 50k, Ice Age 50k, KM100k, Katy 50-DNF, and Fall50) I also was able to pace at WS100. 

        It's been helpful to glean advice from some of the posts and laugh at others.

        My goal for this year is Miwok100 and WS100. I've run as far as 81 miles in a 24 hr but never finished a 100 (DNF @ KM100 in '08)

        I currently reside in MN but am moving to CA sometime in April. Looking forward to the change.

          Welcome!!   Good luck with the move and at WS100!  :-)

            Welcome, Erockalot.  Check back in often.

             

            I crewed for a friend at WS.  It was a blast!

              Another newbie here, decided I should stop bugging Leslie all the time and come here.

               

              AR 50 will be my first trail ultra. Sort of skipped doing a 50K first, that was probably dumb!

               

              My next act will be to post more questions here! Big grin

                      and I bet we all know why that is ?

                      "As a dreamer of dreams and a travelin' man I have chalked up many a mile. Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks, And I've learned much from both of their styles." ~ Jimmy Buffett

                        I've decided to cross over to the darker side....according to my family, marathon running was already the dark side, this is the next level!  Smile

                          Hi everyone...same story for me...crossing over from the long stuff to the super long stuff. Just, uh, curious and looking for a new challenge. I'll probably lurk here mostly, looking to soak up knowledge from some of you who've been there.

                                I guess I'll crawl out from under the rug, too.

                                 

                                I've run a couple marathons and a little over a 50k in a 6 hour (all of this a few years ago). Since then my running has been pretty sporadic. Volunteering with jlynnbob at Rocky Racoon earlier this year, has rekindled my goal to try my hand feet at a 50 miler. Right now, I'm in get-my-fat-ass-back-in-shape mode and tentatively planning on the 50 miler in Palo Duro Canyon in October.

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