35 Miler Around The Corner!

Georgia JewelWho doesn’t enjoy a good 35 mile run somewhere in the Georgia mountains?

It’s that time of year again, time to run the ultras!  I can’t wait.

In fact I couldn’t wait, so I’ve entered a 35 mile trail race in Georgia!

The picture to the left is part of that race from what I understand. Those two dots are actually people!

The 35 mile race has a 30 hour cut off time.  That’s right 30 hours.  I  don’t think it will take me nearly that long but throw in a few of those steep hills and who knows?  My last 30 plus mile ultra took me about 7 hours.

The most interesting part of running ultras is being in the wilderness alone often not seeing other runners for over  an hour at a time.  Yes, thoughts creep into your head making you wonder if you took a wrong turn on the trail somewhere – that really happens.

I’ll let you know how it goes as it is a rain or shine event!
