      Hi Sue!  Smile

        Hey Mandy! You're getting 10 months of notice this year. Get your butt over to Ohio in Sept! Smile

          I can't!  I'm locked into pacing and crewing at Sawtooth Superior every year!  (Of course, my runner has deemed that it is okay if I want to run the entire thing with her, but my balls aren't that big.)

                I registered for the Vulture Bait 50k so it is highly unlikely I will be doing this one. Cry

                 

                I am going to miss everyone.

                  I'm in!

                        Muddling through

                          I finally found my way over here. I really think I'd like to run this time but I'm hesitant to commit to something that far ahead as well as so far outside my running experience. I've had a history over the last 5-6 years of incurring injuries any time I try to bump my mileage up to more than about 40 mpw. While the injuries haven't been serious, they've take sometimes months to heal and I not only lose fitness but speed each time. Sorry but speed is important to me since I'm usually at the other end of the spectrum. I have 3-4 800m and mile races planned for this winter.

                            George, sign up!

                             

                            i'm already looking forward to next year. 

                             

                            Sue, you have a new avi pic. Cute!

                              George-Welcome! FWIW, I think maintaining speedwork is important for running ultras. It's not all about long and easy miles. Here's an article: the info is pretty basic but the comments are interesting and more helpful. You have 5-6 months after this winter racing season to train for Northcoast! http://www.irunfar.com/2012/04/your-bag-of-tricks-essential-elements-of-successful-ultramarathon-training.html Jen-That's Timmy!

                                Just wanted to say hello to everyone.  The BF is Spam Central Station this morning, so I decided to quit lurking and post here.  (At work, or I would upload an avatar.)
