My issue arrived in the mailbox yesterday. I am only through the first dozen pages, but I am impressed so far. Good article by Shawn McDonald on planning annual training for the new year.<br><br>
Kudos to "Sherpa" John Lacroix for his article on becoming a new RD. Good luck to you and your endeavor to bring more ultra races to the New England region.<br><br>
I've only breezed through the race reports, but I'm happy to read about Connie Gardner's (local NE Ohioan) near record result at Ultracentric 24 hour. I haven't talked to her since then, but I imagine the heartbreak of coming up only 40 meters short of the national 24 hour record of 145.286 miles. Incredible.<br><br>
Any other KR'ers mentioned in this issue?

Now if I could only get people to sign up!<img alt="doubt.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/doubt.gif"><br><br>
Thanks for the Kudos bud! It's a LOT harder than people think and I really feel the work of other RD's is highly under estimated and under appreciated. Currently I am working with the Forest Service to attain permits and then I have about 50 private land owners to contact about using their land... and then I start worrying about aid stations and volunteers. And only two people have sign up.. its early yet though... besides.. who is crazy enough to run 200 miles anyway?! <img alt="laughing7.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/laughing7.gif">

SHERPA - well, seeing as how I <i>just</i> this weekend ventured out past the 26.2 mile mark, it's a wee bit early to sign up for a 100 mile fun run <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"><br><br>
If I had the miles under my belt, I'd run your race, no doubts <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

It sounds like an interesting read. I'll have to look out for the publication -- would it be available at a good newsstand to check out an issue or two?<br><br>
Good luck with your RD endeavors, Sherpa John.

I don;t think it is available on new stands. They have a website: <a href="http://www.ultrarunning.com/" target="_blank">http://www.ultrarunning.com/</a><br><br>
Its worth the subscription! Its a lot of race reports and results, some editorials.. and a lot of GOOD SCIENCE!

I haven't got the latest issue yet, but I'm looking forward to it. Overall, what do you guys think of the new editors?<br><br>
And Sherpa, I don't know where I'll be living next fall, but it's it's anywhere in Eastern Canada then I'll be signing up for the 200.
