I’m starting to think about MdS as a restful vacation with a bit running thrown in. I’m not underestimating the desert...
To Western or Not to Western?Liza
I’m working on gathering more volunteers for the Rocky 50 on February 8th today, so this’ll be a short post. (And send me a note if you’d like to volunteer. I guarantee it’ll be a great time — especially if I don’t have to fill the volunteer ranks from inmates at the Huntsville penitentiary.)
This was in my inbox this morning:
I wonder if nursepurse would like to sponsor an ultrarunner to Western States?
So that’s the question today. Should I accept the WS spot?
2. I live in San Antonio. We do have heat, but we don’t have big hills. Western States would require a lot of time on my garage treadmill simulating long climbs and long descents. Now, I love garage treadmill running as much as the next person, but at a certain point don’t you have to make peace with the terrain where you live and choose races that allow you to run outside — with friends?
1. I had an awful race there a couple of years ago when I taunted the weather gods and there was hail and freezing rain the first few hours of the race. It’d be nice to go back and put together a good race.
2. If I did well, I’d have a chance to share RWB’s mission with more folks.
