Thanks for the responses!
I'm not sure which motivates me more, hearing that I can do it or hearing that I shouldn't do it.
Either way, there's never really been any doubt in my mind that I will do the 50k in moab, I've probably just been spending a little to much time in front of the computer the last couple days
Chris, Is that photo of Klondike?
It appears you like the same type of running I do. I noticed two in particular 1) Grand Slam ... I have wanted to do that for a few years. 2) Indian Peaks Marathon ... What route are you thinking? A couple of years ago when I was training for BC I had quite a few cool loops mapped out. My favorite is the Arapahoe Pass loop. It starts and ends at 4th of July goes over Arapahoe pass and back over Caribou. I think it would be pretty easy to put together a 50 on just trails ... especially if you had a shuttle on the WP or Granby side. I have another crazy day for you ... Its a bike, Mountaineering event. Start at either Idaho Springs, Bergan Park or Echo Lake, ride up Evans, lock your bike, cross the Saw tooth to Bierstat, then back down.
