I registered today. It is such a fun race. Run 10 miles early and you still have time to do whatever else on Sunday, like run 10 more, or climb or hike.
I saw Talus at last year's race. Anyone else doing it?

I'm signed up, injuries permitting I'll be running it again - it is a favorite of mine.

Signed up too! Last fall's run was my very first running race ever. I had injured my Achille's tendon in July and rested it from running for two months. I did a few warm-up runs a couple of weeks prior to the race and then did it.

Given I ran it pretty much off the couch, I was happy with my overall race, but was sore as if I was run over by a truck for about three days... so I am hoping that I can avoid this unfortunate side effect this year if I train well until then.

I had very modest goals:
1) Show up
2) Not re-injure my tendon
3) Follow my own momentum
4) Finish
5) Run, not walk


I have the same goals this year, except I am hoping to improve my time a bit (1h40). I love hills...

Hope to talk with you all at the race this year. I need to beat last year's time, of course, and will be up for running some more miles after the race too.

Mim, I love hills too. I suck at climbing them but I keep trying to improve. I am running the Escarpment Trail race on Sunday - lots and lots of climbs there. eek

Lots of nuggets from that man, such as, "When you think you are done, you're only 40% into what your body can do". I'll bet he was one hell of a SEAL.

A very inspirational post, Mim. Goggins is an amazing athlete.

It was nice to see you and Rich and Felix at Escarpment on Sunday - such a fun day out smile
