        You Mercans use a funny format - so 2/9 means 9th of Feb doesn't it?  Or does it mean 2nd of Sep?

            Purdy is excited about 2013 ...

             

            I have made no decisions about 2013 ...

            2013 Goals ~ Mar < 3:00, 5M < 29, 10k < 35  

             

              Purdy is excited about 2013 ...

               

               

              Yep.  The series of races leads to another attempt at 24hrs in Sep 2013.

              DoppleBock


                Or just run the Grand Union Canal race in < 24 hours ...

                 

                That is basically why my 2013 is in flux.  I am giving the 24 one last shot in December 2012.  If I make the US Team, I will follow one path for 2013.  If I do not, I will follow another path.

                 

                Either way I will put my name in the Lottery for Western States

                 

                The other races I really want to do:  Big Horn 100 (Some day), Superior 100, Kettle Moraine 100, Zumbro 100M, Mad City 100k.  But the 24 is a mean slave master and does not like to share with 100s.

                The King of Beasts

                    Big Horn 100 

                   

                  I dont have a good reason but that race is on my list - but probably not for 2013

                   

                  Not sure about 2013 but I know I want to take a crack at my marathon PR.

                  "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 don't see much sense in that," said Rabbit. "No," said Pooh humbly, "there isn't. But there was going to be when I began it. It's just that something happened to it along the way."”

                    Should get that bitch over early, so you can focus on longer stuff ... I have you penciled in for Superior 100 as you again say FU to Leadville.

                     

                    Maybe Houston in January - Get the PR done ...

                     

                    I am not sure what draws me to Big Horn?  It looks real nice ....

                    A Sweetheart

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

                       

                      3/2  Carl Touchstone Memorial 50k  Laurel, MS

                       

                      3/23  New Jersey Ultra Festival 100k  Augusta, NJ         (I finally get to drink with  race for Hasher Rick.  We should make it a RA party.)

                       

                      5/25  Grand Union Canal Race  145 mile  Birmingham to London, UK    (See what I will do to get to spend time with Purdey?)

                       

                      9/14 (or 21?)  Bismarck Marathon  Bismark, ND     (Gonna try to run a fast marathon.  Dummy.)

                       

                      10/26  24 the Hard Way Oklahoma City, OK

                      I want to do it because I want to do it.  -Amelia Earhart

                        I'd really like to do Ice Age 50 again, maybe take a shot at sub 7.  That's usually the 2nd Saturday in May.  This is my top race priority for next year.

                         

                        I also have promised myself I will do my first 100 next year, but if I want to race Ice Age all out, it rules out racing 100 at least 2 months before and probably 1 month after.  So still gotta decide what to do for this...

                         

                        Maybe Ice Breakers Marathon in January, just to try for a sub 3 for the year.

                          Or just run the Grand Union Canal race in < 24 hours ...

                           

                          Course record is 25:37 by Pat Robbins who ran well for GB in the recent World 24hr Champs - sub 24 would be a truly world class performance... And it certainly won't come from me!!!!

                           

                          MTA: Just checked some old results and I beat Pat Robbins in a trail 50k in 2010 (Purdey 3:39 vs Robbins 4:12 - not that that means anything at all as he was probably just using it as a training run, and I was racing it - and it is not a good indicator of how fast you can run 145 miles......)
