Depends on the holidays, and the weather, but I do plan on running. I'm planning on running as many FAs as possible this winter. There is one in Cleveland the following weekend, then the Winter BT50k in late Jan.<br><br>
But yeah, count me in.

I'm working with the park now on making it an official unofficial event. Hopefully that goes smoothly. I have Running Fit here in South East Michigan helping to make it possible by letting us use their insurance and paying for the permit.

This'll be the 6th year that I do our local version on New Year's Day...we throw in a Polar bear dip in the Pacific at the end....50 seconds minimum.

Sorry Tim, I'm restricting my travel budget.<br><br>
As far as local ones, we'll see. I have a resolution to avoid 50Ks for the rest of 2007 and all of 2008. That's what's so cool about yours - 50M. Almost all FAs around here are 50 or 55K so we'll see how my resolution holds up. I'll probably break down and run the Pigtails Flat Ass on Dec 22 at least.<br><br>
Is Rocky Racoon considered a Fatass? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

<bump><br><br>
I have 30+ people who have indicated they will be running the 50k. This is exciting.<br><br>
Any other takers?

Tim, its an option. If I come up Friday night, where can I stay?<br><br>
Also, I'm looking for info on the DE Slug event. Is there a link? Place to stay?
