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!
