A great place for running gear

I definitely miss the ultramarathon scene and need one big race. Given my 2010 DNF at the Hallucination 100, I think that would be an excellent place to start. Also, I heard from Dirt Dawg that the organization and aid provided at Hallucination is much better than it was in 2010. The thing is, I have two ways to ramp up to that. My first option is that I schedule a few marathons such as the Trail Marathon, the Martian Marathon, and the Carrollton Maraton leading up to the Hallucination. Option two is that I run Hallucination as the fourth race in the Midwest Grand Slam, a series of four 100 mile races throughout the Midwest. I think that option one is definitely doable. The Midwest Grand Slam would definitely be a challenge both in terms of physical effort and logistics. But gosh, it just sounds like fun...
I'll decide for sure next year. Happy New Year everyone!

After a summer of essentially zero running, I am at it again. Between traveling to China, taking care of two kids, and finishing the basement running was just not much of an option. In the scheme of things I think it was probably good for me to have some time off. Still, running has always been one of my favorite ways to relax and do some thinking so I am glad to be back at it. I don't have any particular race goals or training program so we'll see how everything plays out. I do like the idea of another ultra in 2013...

I've been on a bit of a running hiatus after a spring marathon. However, with school starting again and, in particular Elliott headed for the 1st grade, I'm hoping to get back in the swing of things. I also miss blogging and am thinking about making it part of my running routine again. Stay tuned...
