    So I know that I need to do hills (lots and lots of hills) but do I also need to practice running on grass? (is that a stupid question? it's just that i always run on mechatum/asphalt)
      is that a stupid question?
      Yes.

        You will be on grass for all of about 1/2 a mile...tops. Not even that much.

        Thunder smash!

          Several people complained about the OBX marathon having trails as part of the run. Whopping 1/2 mile of well worn trail with every little root well marked. I think I go off road for more distance on my long runs than that.

                  Lessee. So far today, Thunder, who has yet to run the Monkey, has advised that folks stay in a hotel at the other end of town from the race, that there is less grass on the course than there really is, and has messed with admin functions on this board. Super Thunder!! Smile

                    Saw this "The Monkey runs on grass through about mile 0.3, then on asphalt until 25.9, then back out on grass for the finish." But read it as "The Monkey runs on grass through about mile 0.3, then until 25.9, then back out on grass for the finish." Which clearly makes no sense, but I sat in the sun all day. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!
                      The grass is the least of your worries. I know a good hook-up.

                            ah, so the grass is before the monkey....

                              Indeed. I don't do "trails." But much of the semi-rural roads I run on have me running in the grass for short stretches here and there.
