Finishing the 100 miler was the hardest, most rewarding thing I have ever done. I am fascinated and intrigued by such an obscene distance. So.....less than one week after finishing the Javelina Jundred......
I signed up for my next ultramarathon: The Zion 100!
I will be honest, this scares the Gatorade right out of me. The course is challenging and I'm nervous about the heat (the race is May 11th and 12th 2012). But there are a few reasons why I couldn't pass it up:
1) It's right in my backyard. I love the thought that I won't have to travel and can sleep in my own bed the night before the race.
2) I know some of the trails well, and will be able to train on the course.
3) This is the innagural race (there is a 50 miler as well).
I would love to have you sign up. I want you to join me on this adventure and see what it's like to push your body to the max and then keep pushing it. (Remember? Misery loves company.) CLICK HERE to visit the race website for more information. I will be happy to give you any training tips or coaching based on my fairly limited experience.
Pre-race party at my house? I'll bring the Twinkies.
