Pay Up Time!

Thats right I had pay for registration on some races. First race is the Mohican 100 June 19 & 20, then the Burning River 100 July 31 & Aug 1. Theirs something about once you pay for a race. "ITS ON" no backing out now! And after a week of only 42 miles, I know I have too get my ass in gear. I will shoot for sub 24hr on both races. It will be hard both races so close together, and in summer heat. Thats why I need to train hard now. I still need to think about some more race's to enter, I like races close to home, keeps cost down right now.

Yes, it is on! Congrats on signing up for 2 races. The marathons have gotten really expensive, so I can only imagine how much a 100 mile race must cost. Good luck!

Thanks for the advise, it is amazing how 1 mile can hurt. Good luck with the 100 miles training, maybe I will see you at BR, if I have no family conflict, volunteer not run.

You should try Oil Creek in October.

Ya!! Oil Creek is on the list, but so many great fall 100mile races!

Brian - curious if you have done 2 100s like this before.

Wow, two 100 mile races almost back to back? What is the recovery time like after a 100 mile race? Ever thought about signing up for the Leadville 100 out here in colorado?

Not up to par for a big race like leadville 100. Maybe in a year or two. I am still building up my running, I know my limits.

Wait a second... 100 miles? 24 hours? OMG... you are a beast!

You're going to do two 100 mile races? Wow. I'd really be crying about the race fees on two big races like that. I need to read blogs like yours and keep telling myself, "I only have to run half of what those really crazy people are running."
