In other news, training is going well. I've started planning to run a series of races leading up to Hallucination. These races serve as miniature goals to help keep me motivated. Also, through a combination of coincidence and intent, they are something of a trip down memory lane. First, I'll run the Trail Marathon in Pinkney on 4/24 (as well as a half marathon on 4/23 to complete the No Wimps Challenge). I've actually run this race a few times, including in 2013 when I was also training for Hallucination. I'll follow this with the Two Hearted 50k in Paradise on 6/24. I've never run this before, but it just seemed appropriate. Finally, I'll peak my long runs with with 50 miles at Burning River on 8/6. This was the location of my second 100 mile race.
Please consider being one of the first six to commit to collecting $500 for the Children's Grief Center. I'm off to put some miles on the treadmill.
