Apparently not. I just signed up for my next adventure in running. I'm moving to the dark side. Yes, I've signed up for my first Ultramarathon. Well, ok, it's "just" a 50k but it's a nasty hard one with 5,459 feet of elevation gain. I'm pretty sure that means I might need to train on some hills this summer.
The race I signed up for is the Oil Creek 50k in Titusville, PA. Its about 2 hours North of Pittsburgh on an incredible trail in Oil country at the Oil Creek State Park. Here's a look at the map:
|50k - one loop|
It's taken me a long time to get my mind over running this distance. Wouldn't you know that I happen to go with a pretty tough one. I have Dave and Kevin to thank for that.
I'm sure I'll talk more about it as I start my training but I'm pretty excited. Actually I'm freaking out. That's over 31 miles of running. Yikes!
Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!
