Okay, enough frivolity for a while. I've decided: I'm running the Superior 50 Mile in 2010. I'm going to win it. I'm going to set a course record (7:58). Any racing done prior to it will be specific to that goal (probably just the Superior 50K). Anything beyond that is distant future - 2011 might be FANS 24 hour and Superior 100, 2012 setting state records for my new (gasp) age class.
I've never done well on the Superior trail and I've never done well at a distance beyond 50K. Then again, I've never given either a fair shot. Last year, for example, I did the Superior 50K after 200 miles of races in the previous month.
I'm tired of screwing around. I'll post my training only if I think it promotes my chances of reaching my goal. Right now, you're all just competition.
Be afraid. Be very afraid. I'm out for blood again - this time, someone else's.
