I registered for my third ultra this morning, and first non-24 hour race, The Door County Fall 50! It takes place in two and a half weeks. Am I totally ready? Not entirely sure, but the last few weeks have gone well, I mean I just ran a 2:54:54 marathon Sunday during a 27 mile run, so I'm not doing bad.
This race is exciting because it's close to my parents house, so logistics are easy, just driving no airplanes. It's also the 50 mile national championship, in a year when the really fast guys are probably focusing on the marathon olympic trials. It will be a learning experience. At this moment my biggest fear is staying healthy from now until the race, and then during the race. Here we go!
