      Tentative schedule:

      Are we there yet?

        I thought I'd already posted here, but I don't see it. Must be old age setting in.

         

        First ultra ever - NC 24 12-hour run Sep 21 (at least I hope to exceed the marathon distance)

          3/16/13 - Georgia Death Race (Georgia)

           

          Darn it! My father retired in Blue Ridge a few years ago and I can never find races close him. This looks perfect. I wish it fit in my schedule. I have hiked the entire AT through Georgia (and the Amicalola approach trail), and I know those trails are very tough and relentless.

            The Death Race filled up before I even saw it.  Will have to pay attention to it next year.

             

            There is a Double Top 100 race in early March in the Cohutta mountains which has not filled yet.

              Unfortunately, I'm probably an idiot.

               

              I signed up for Umstead 100 for April 6, 2013.  The race director of Georgia Death Race is a friend of mine, and, when he announced the Georgia Death Race, I initially declined, because GDR is only three weeks before Umstead.  A short time later, though, I succumbed to the hype and the excitement.  I am now signed for for both. 

               

              Georgia Death Race is only 60 miles (in that ultramarathon loosely-approximate sense), but it includes over 30,000 feet of elevation change.  Everyone who runs that race is going to be totally destroyed for at least a week or two. 

               

              I am confident in my ability to make a showing for both races, but I'm probably shoving my chances for a sub-24-hour Umstead under the bus. 

                1/12  Bandera 100k  Bandera, TX            (They are holding my very, very, very favorite race on my birthday!  What a present!)

                 

                 

                On a suggestion, to see what Ultra running is all about, I will be volunteering at one of the aide stations in January.  Looking forward to the experience.

                    I heard through the grapevine that there may be an additional 50 spots opening for the Georgia Death Race. Will keep you posted.
