                I know, right.

                 

                My wife will be in LV for business, so I'm tagging along as the +1.

                We looked around to see if there were any races to do together, and Labor of Love fits the bill.

                She is new to running and this will be her first 10k

                xor


                  Ah!  Well, that is pretty exciting.  I dunno about the 10k... I do know that the big daddy version of that course is pretty challenging hillwise.  Joyce/Calico do a very good job with their races.  Have fun!

                   


                  Imminent Catastrophe

                    OK here's my tentative schedule, although by announcing it here there's a better chance that I will actually run these races:

                     

                    3/17    Tarawera 100k  Rotorua, New Zealand

                    4/14    Eisenhower Marathon KS

                    4/29    Mt.  Lemmon Marathon AZ

                    5/6      Pittsburgh Marathon PA

                    5/12    Ice Age 50 Mile WI

                    6/8-9   Bear Lake Double UT/ID

                    7/21    Tahoe Rim Trail 50 Mile NV

                    10/13  Le Grizz 50 Mile MT

                    11/18  Monkey Marathon, unless I have something better to do. Like, if the next Vampire Movie sequel opens that day. Or there's an online sale at Zombierunner. Or I'm too tired. Whatever.

                      I got scared when I saw you posted.  There is no way in hell that I'm typing up your marathon schedule for the year.

                        Shoot, I can't even commit (privately, to myself) to a specific schedule.  It seems that the big ones I've planned (Rocky, Miwok) have gone shithouse.

                         

                        The only two that I know for sure, even if I have to show up in a full body cast...

                         

                        3/31  Yakima River Canyon Marathon.  Mostly to lend big mojo and witness the 82 year old race director finish his 500th.

                        4/16 Boston

                         

                        The rest is all fuzz.

                         

                        I'd like to do Fools, actually, but I can't get there from Yakima in time.

                         

                        I will also be working and maybe pacing the Pigtails race that Gumbee is running, as well as Cascade in August.  I need to get my shit together for that one because my runner is extra serious this year.

                         

                        I'm a little bummed I didn't sign up for Ice Age.  All the cool people seem to be going to Ice Age.

                              What is it that is so attractive about Flying Monkey?

                               

                               

                              Nothing.  It is punishment for bad deeds in a past life.

                               

                              MTA:  Something else:  I had looked for a 50 states group on RA.  I always thought it was weird that there wasn't one.  Looking for something else I came across http://www.runningahead.com/groups/50States/forum.  Just thought that some people may be interested considering we have a lot of people traveling to race.  It isn't a big group.
