Open Mouth, Insert Foot

Did I say no Ultras??? Was that me??? I must have been hysterical!!

I've entered the dark side, and there's no stopping now it seems!

I've been challenged by my crazy girlfriend, Anne, to join her in a 4:15 Marathon time next year. I plugged in that time into www.mcmillanrunning.com to find my long run, tempo run and speed run paces. I will work up to those times this year and shove that time in her face (lovingly, of course)!! :)

So...as for the ultra.....Ice Age 50K here I come!!!!

lol. When I read you said no ultras I knew it would only be a matter of time before you were talking about an ultra :)

I've got the Ice Age 50 on my calendar too!! Also, McNaughton trail is Mid-April and only a few hours drive south from your neck of the woods.... something to think about. :)

AWESOME.

A 50k is lingering in my head, but I think I need a few more marathons under my belt first. I can't wait to follow you in this madness! I will totally live vicariously through you.

Hey Lora,
That was an awesome race report...i feel your pain!! Great job!
Also, the mcmillan pace calculator is very cool. Nice to throw in a "dream finish time" and see the work necessary to get there via the necessary training paces. Thanks for the link!

The dark side indeed! It is amazing how one's mindset evolves regarding what the body can accomplish. This is going to be a great journey - can't wait to read about it.

I wonder what I'll do after I run my marathon, whether I'll settle for a maintenance run now and then, or I'll be contaminated by running faster and further, like seemingly everybody around :).
