In light of this recent post on the Scientific American blog, I decided to fill the rest of the year with interesting challenges. My heart is fine, damn it!
June- Bighorn 100 miler, Dayton, Wyoming
July- Grand Mesa 100 miler, Grand mesa national Forest, Colorado
August- Trans-Rockies six day stage race, Rocky Mountains, Colorado
September- Hallucination 100 miler, Hell, Michigan (planning on running barefoot)
October- Grindstone 100 miler, Swoope, Virginia
November- Chimera 100 miler, Saddleback Mountains, Southern California
December- Across the Years 72 hour race, Phoenix, Arizona
It will make for an interesting challenge. Spending all winter running in mountains will provide a good training base, and the varied elevation and technical trails suits my style of running.
Shelly and I will also be crewing/pacing for Jeremiah Cataldo at the Black Hills 100 and Jesse Scott at the Tahoe Rim 100 miler.
Anyone planning on running any of these races?
