i kinda knew sooner or later i'd need to go ahead and commit to another ultra. it's cheap(ish), has 11K of vertical and gabbo and i can stay with her sister and her boyfriend for the weekend (cutting cost is requisite).
does anyone have 11,000 spare feet of "Up" or "Down" that i can borrow for a few weeks of practice?
ADDED: i also registered for the Pinckney, MI Road Ends Trail Marathon. I had really wanted to run this last year, as it covers the best trails within two hours of my house and in a mere 26ish miles. the spring schedule is coming together, apparently. i may try for a fast road marathon in april, but i don't know why yet.
