Im in. The only bummer is it is the same weekend as Flying Pig. I have no more details than is up here..Not sure if this will serve as the 2012 National Championship.

OK This will be the US 24 Hour National Championship.
Nice. I am interested. Probably wait to see how lotteries shake out.

Disappointing. I understand why they are doing this, but seeing as I am still in Nepal, and haven't run in Buddha-knows-how-long, I can't see myself being in shape for this. On the bright side, I have always wanted to go back to the Badgerland F/X 24 hr. It has been a schedule conflict with Northcoast, so now maybe I can do it again.
DB...Badgerland. Just saying.

I'm already in for Flying Pig and a big RA LLR meetup. (Not that I have any aspirations in the Championship anyway. )
But, looks like I might rather head for Wisconsin in September...

OK, Im definitely in. Went into the last one untrained, and set a baseline. Now that I know what to expect, I really want to see what I can do.
Assuming weather isnt any more of a factor than it was in September - All else being equal, I would expect a better performance. I learned what makes sense for me as far as taking breaks and nutrition.
I learned I could put myself through as much pain as anyone. Combining that with some real training, I dont think 100 miles is out of reach.
Hopefully some of y'all will join me. It really added to last year's experience meeting a few of you.
I signed up. Working up a training plan. Basically, I just need to find the free time to get my runs in and log some substantial miles every week. I will be more cautious in ramping up than I was last year--f'd up my back at the beginning of February.
