                  I hear this one is pretty technical.

                    I hear this one is pretty technical.


                    I think I would need to work on more than my back strength for that one....

                      "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."

                        Anyone know when Cascade Crest opens and how quickly it fills?  Unless I get in WS / Grand Slam this year may be a nice one to do in August.

                          I forget when it opens -- spring, I think -- but it's a lottery. You have pretty good odds, though, because even if you don't get in right away, generally most people on the waiting list will make it as others drop. This year, everyone on the waiting list got in.


                          MTA I couldn't believe it when I dropped a week before the race, and got a refund check from the RD. Huh?? Here I thought maybe I would get banned or something for dropping so late, as I heard happened to one Badwater entrant.


                            Yeah, Cascade went to a lottery last year because the previous year filled right when it opened (maybe not Umstead fast, but damn fast).  The RD, cat named Charlie, is a super nice guy that shows up to run or volunteer at other ultras.  Bob, I bet you've been at a race or two with him but had no way of knowing.


                            FWIW, your odds of getting into Cascade approach unity if you volunteer.  So, Daddy, if you want to make two pilgrimages to the PNW, you're in like flynnflint.



                              Thanks.  SrL, one trip is likely all I will have in me Smile  Of course will have to wait until Hardrock and WS lotteries happen before can commit to anything else.


                                I hear this one is pretty technical.


                                It's an ankle breaker but was my first ultra (I was clueless).  Want some redemption Approve
