    2014 may be a year when I could do this. I would want to share this Adventure with my older sister and she is doing her 1st 50 miler this June. I may run this by my sister and my wife and see what they think.

     

    T-Rod, I'd run it with you.  That would be awesome.

      I'd have to convince my boss (wife) that a trip to do this would be fun for her and the kids.

        Doug, you are evil and a bad influence, and I love that about you.  If this was closer hot me, I'd be seriously tempted.

         

        If you guys are looking to try a different 24 hour race then I present to you 24 HOURS AT SUNSET

        Cost is reasonable @ $40/person or $350 for a 10 person relay.

         

        For the 2012 race the male individual winner went 102.3 miles, female indivual went 52.7 miles.  Overall team winner went 182.9 miles

            Nothing says, "Fun for the whole family", like Des Moines, IA.

              We were running through a park. Eagles were spotted!

                I like all of Iowa that I've experienced, but that's just me.  I'm not sure how I'd sell it to someone else.  I personally, love the World's Largest Truck Stop on I-80.

                    Don't just pass it.  Grab lunch, and check out some of the trinkets.  It's pretty awesome in it's own way.

                      24 Hours at Sunset is 6 miles from my house so I might be there as well.  Course is almost all grass / trail.  Expect a few rolling hills though, but not bad.

                        That sunset run looks fun!

                        Take Charge. Train Harder. Suck Less. No Excuses.

                          And a beaver. Though he wasn't very healthy-looking.

                           

                          I think Des Moines has a children's museum, and there is Living History Farms just outside of town.

                            I forgot about the beaver!

                            Can't add anything to the discussion of sights. All I saw was Wal-Mart and the local running store.

                              Here is a rough track of the loop at Sunset (Party at the Park) along with an elevation profile.

                                You know, it was actually a really pretty park!  The eagles were awesome.  And hey, Starbucks wasn't too far away either.  I sat and drank a beer at sunset and looked out at the lake.

                                 

                                Really though, the company was the best part.  Smile
