Dances with Dirt 50k
Not that any trail marathon is going to prepare me for it but it's a start. It looks like right now I have one other crazy soul, my running buddy Kevin, that will(hopefully) join me in this crazy adventure. I have to say though, that I'm looking for more recruits. I think it would be fun to have a team of 3-5 of us out there to keep each other company.
Here's a couple pictures from their website to give you an idea of what it's all about.
The goal for this is just to finish. I don't care how long it takes as long as we make the cut offs to finish as official finishers. It will be my first 50k, an Ultra! Woohoo! Yeah, I don't choose easy for my first race distance like this, huh? Of course, I'm getting a little ahead of myself as they have not even done this years race but I'll assume it will continue next year as well.
Running fit had me with the Sleepy Hollow Trail Half(full review HERE) and I plan to do several of their trail races next year.
Would you run it? Have you run it? What's your opinion?

Finally, I want to thank Stephanie from In Steph's Shoes for convincing me to consider this race. I was chicken at first but facing my fears is something I'm learning this year. Go follow her blog - she, her husband and her Dad are amazing and talented runners!
Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!
