In 2002, I was looking for a marathon to run and almost signed up for the Minnesota Voyageur 50 Mile. I had this ignorant attitude of "forget the marathon.... this sounds like a real challenge".
I am glad I did not. I probably would have killed my desire to do Ultras.
Now, with a good year, and what looks like to be a cool forecast, I am finally signed up for it.
I am really not expecting much, just to get out and do my best for what this 50 miler has to offer. There are a lot of fast runners signed up, so it should be a fun time.
I am using this as a tune up race, so if I don't do great, at least it counts as a long run.
And on the work note, Dallas has nothing to do with the job. It is not based there, the company is not based there, and I won't be going there. It was just a convenient location for the two I had to meet.
I won't name the company for fear on jinxing it. One never knows with google alerts. I have not even received the official deal for me to sign.
Hey Brother Grub.... it's you vs. me on those power lines.
