Tag, congratulations on finishing a tough race and improving over last year. That's quite a scenic course, but some of the climbs look pretty severe (I peeked at the course profile). Your buddies did quite well too.<br><br>
Healing vibes to Jen.
Heh, heh, "Censored." I bet.<br><br>
Nice improvement over last year, Tag. And you didn't get hurt, as ordered. By the pics, the event sure lived up to its name.<br><br>
Sorry to hear about Jen's SF. Hope she gets better soon.<br><br>
So what's next?
Haven't decided what's next, SS. I may register for another marathon before it turns warm and try to qualify for Boston. I thought I was ready in December, but it was too hot and humid that day for me (and a lot of others is seems)<br><br>
I also want to keep lowering my times in the shorter races. I have 45Minute 10K, 21min 5K, and 1:39 or less half marathons as goals during 2008. More 50K trail runs? Almost certainly. Any recommendations?
This is on my list after I get a few other things accomplished. I know it's a bit of a hike (meaning travel) for you, but the views really are stunning.<br><br><a href="http://www.kneeknacker.com/RaceInfo/RaceDescription.htm" target="_blank">http://www.kneeknacker.com/RaceInfo/RaceDescription.htm</a><br><br>
But it's just short of 50k so maybe you're not interested. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"> What else are you gonna do in your neck of the woods in July? It's too hot, right? Not here (most of the time).
Looks like a beautiful, fun, challenging course. I'm checking into travel plans now. The problem is although it's probably nice weather at the race, I'd be training in the middle of hot, humid summer weather here. 20 mile long runs in the summer do not sound appealing.<br><br>
Still, I'm mulling over the possibility.......
