Okay, active.com you did it again, you have my info and you signed me up for another crazy hilly bicycle ride. So I guess I will put it on my race/event list schedule now.
Another crazy 200k (124 mile) bike ride up the Wisconsin hills, appropriately named the "Dairy-land Dare".
Okay, back to the running. If you get a chance to listen to the latest "Zen in the Art of Triathlon" Pod-cast, they had a interview with a very inspirational and I must say Bad-Ass ultra-runner Catra Corbett .
She has done fifty 100 milers, doing the 150 McNaughton trail race (I'm only doing the 50 miler part). And is planning in May along with a french dude to conquer the Pacific Coast Trail. A unsupported trek and hopefully at record pace of under 82 days. The Pacific Coast Trail starts from the border of Mexico and finishes at the border of Canada.. Can I get a "YIKES"
Another obscene crazy event is this event:
So as I embark on my long runs this weekend, with weather reaching above 40 degrees, can I get a "whoop, whoop", I do sometimes daydream of what I could do next, do I want to attempt a outrageous crazy endurance events. Hmm, okay not really! Since I even haven't completed my 1st 50 miler. But I'm already looking at the 100 miler races on the things to do list. More than 24 hours of running, okay maybe just think about it a little bit. But I'm also sometimes reminded by these events that the only limit to our abilities is the one we put on ourselves.
As for me for now, as long as I get home before more crazy packages catches the eye of my wife at my doorstep from EBay and Amazon.com, that will be enough of an endurance event for me..
