    Imminent Catastrophe

      Well, I got into JFK50 on Nov 17. Now I need to apply for a loan to pay for it. It's the 50th anniversary, I hope there's a lot of hoopla.

                I'm late, it being March, but I thought it might be nice to have a calendar for the year where we can post our tentative or not so tentative racing schedule.  Don't worry, no need to post goal or results.  It might be nice to expose other RA'ers to races they are not aware of, and so RA'ers can keep an eye out for their fellow RA'ers at races.  If you post in other threads I won't force you to be on this list, so if you want it here, go ahead and give me some dates, names, distances, and locations.  (Lurkers too!)

                 

                What do people think about throwing non-ultras on here?   Decision made.  Marathons are on, shorter is off.  This doesn't excuse you from going out and getting speedy at some shorter distances!  Wink

                        Well now.  DB just convinced me to sign up and I am no longer part of the wishy washy club (for this race anyway).  I swear it was the fact that they have nice showers for me to use after the race. Big grin.  Actually, DW will most likely be doing DWD 50K as her first ultra.  Is it bad that I haven't warned her about the course yet?
