        After that I do not know

         

        Wow, that's quite a lot.  Keyes peak, I've never heard of this one.  Know anything about the course?

         

        If you want one in early Jan still relatively close - Frozen Gnome 50K 1/13, Crystal Lake, IL.  

         

        It's single track and hilly.  Yeah I know hard to believe in IL, but I ran a 10 mile on the course last weekend, it was pretty close to as hilly as IAT 50.

          Not anything about the course - I know they are "Enviromentalists" = No cups at any aide stations and if they catch a gel wrapper on ground you will be DQ'd + likely get some in your face speech about green stuff - All of which I am ok.

           

          January is for Training

          Crusty is for fun training only

          March is for training only

           

          April - Is time to show what I can deliver from 4 months of training (Dec - Mar)

           

          The Boston / Mad City double has me troubled - 5 days apart.

           

          If I get into Western States - The KM100 becomes the KM 38 mile night fun run + Volunteering and Keyes Peak gets the axe.

            I'm in for two 50k's in the winter.  Still gotta decide if/when I run a 100.

                            I am waiting to hear the results of a certain lottery before I set the rest of my 2013 schedule.  

                              02/16 - Moab Red Hot, 55k, Moab, UT

                               

                              In the Hardrock lottery again... results of that posted Dec 16.  Fingers crossed.

                               

                              I will probably wind up walking the Red Hot, we'll see.

                               

                              I herniated 2 discs and completely ruptured a third in my lumbar spine in August.  Saturday was my first "run" since Aug 5...  so there's not going to be much racing in 2013.  Still not out of the woods for spinal surgery, but the odds are improving.
