I'm surprised 10 miles isn't listed as a choice. That's definitely my favorite race distance.

Its a very close call between marathon and ultra-marathon. But the 2 50 milers I have done have been the most relaxed and fun experiences I have had in running - So I am going with long. But ... then again most my goals are around the marathon - Hard call.

Funny - My least favorite is 5k, followed by closely by 1/2 marathon - A half marathon seems like golfing 9 holes?

i so love skating the ultras. anything else seems so short

5k, never done on skates
10k take ~20 minutes
Marathons are ~90 minutes. all so short on skates.

i like to wear out my opponents and chase them down like a hyena on the hunt.
