        You likely won't get much of a report from me.

          Silver Rush 50m - July 15 (Leadville, CO)

            Well, the 50 miler didn't scare me away, though I won't lie--I'd be pleased if it wasn't quite so hot for my next ultra.  Which is...

             

            9/22.  rgilbert, Hocking Hills Indian Run 60k,  Logan, OH.

            "When a person trains once, nothing happens. When a person forces himself to do a thing a hundred or a thousand times, then he certainly has developed in more ways than physical. Is it raining? That doesn't matter. Am I tired? That doesn't matter, either. Then willpower will be no problem."

              Nice run -- in trying conditions.

               

               

                I was supposed to run my FIRST 24 this Saturday and on a whim I signed up for a 50k...just a measly 6 miles, or 10 above my other training runs to date. I'm either going to be inspired and motivated to do better, regardless of the outcome, or ...who knows, I'm not entirely sure. It's just a training run, no pace goal, I'm excited. Psycho wyco 50k trail run, kansas, july 14

                  you guys forgot to tell me how much fun a trail ultra would be!  I had a blast.  I've done marathons and vowed to never do another, and yet beyond 26 miles is all I can think about now. 


                  Imminent Catastrophe

                    Now I've gone and done it... 10/6 Rio Del Lago 100M Granite Bay, CA.

                    Cancel 10/6 St. George Marathon.

                    what a dumbass.

                    "Able to function despite imminent catastrophe"

                     "To obtain the air that angels breathe you must come to Tahoe"--Mark Twain

                    "The most common question from potential entrants is 'I do not know if I can do this' to which I usually answer, 'that's the whole point'.--Paul Charteris, Tarawera Ultramarathon RD.

                     

                    √ Tahoe Rim Trail 100M 20/21 July 2013

                    Boston Marathon 21 April 2014

                    Tahoe Rim Trail 100M 19/20 July 2014

                      in my mind that's 70 miles of realizing what a dumb ass you are.  You must have a mind of steel, I'd see pixies I think. 


                      I'm back!

                        7/28, White River 50M

                                Coleen's Sweaty Ass 50k - Aug 11, Olathe KS

                                Lawrence Trail Hawks 50mi - Sep 09, Lawrence KS

                                 

                                I'm likely pushing my limits with two marathons, two 50k and two 50mi in six months since I had never run more than 26.2.
