I'm excited for next year. I think I'll be running my first TRAIL 50 miler, and a bunch of races I haven't run yet, along with a couple that I have in hopes of a fast time.
I'm planning on John Dick 50k, Ice Age 50k, Dances with Dirt 50k, Marquette Trail 50k...and then it gets interesting. I'm guessing my fall will include the Lapham Peak Marathon and the North Face 50 miler, followed by the Glacial Trail 50k.
If Lapham and North Face are too close together, then I'm guessing that Glacial will be my 50 miler. I'm excited to pick the brains of several friends who have run them (Matt, Dan) and figure out what the heck I'm getting myself in to.
I'm really excited for Marquette, also. Looks like an amazing course. Again, Matt will come in handy, as there doesn't seem to be much available on the web about the new course.
Time to put in some cold weather, snowy, slow-pace-but-high-heart-rate, grind-it-out, FUN miles! Looking forward to it!
