Well, I did it. I signed up for the Deadhorse 50K (yikes! Baby's first ultra! I AM EXCITE but also NERVOUS!) which will be in three weeks!

So I've been doing my long runs on the trails, in an attempt at preparation. (I would feel a lot more prepared if I'd been running more, aie!) I have been bringing my phone/camera so I have an excuse to stop and breathe - I'm not resting, I'm taking pictures!

It must be so awesome to have that in your back yard for a run. :-) Not that the parks and trails here aren't beautiful, but...not like that.

Good luck on your 50k. I'm sure you'll do well. I have signed up for 2 and still haven't run one.

I will definitely take you up on that offer. Sometime. I'm thinking next year, I might do a few less marathons and actually try a tri. :-) That uphill half you do looks like it might be fun. I'm sure I'd be really slow.

Run well!

I'll second the awesome area you have to run in.

I'm sure you'll have no trouble! What's an extra 8km? (She says blithely, never having tried to run it after 42km.)

I've just looked at the race link and see that 1) there's a 25km option and 2) it's near Moab and realised that 3) it's at a time of year I could feasibly travel. Maybe one year!

Pretty ;__; - you and the scenery both :)

Can't wait to live through your race report ^__^

You can do it!

You are such a great trail runner that you will ROCK the 50K. It's really just like a marathon… seriously!
