After running 33 miles this year on my birthday I wanted to find a true race that would allow me to run an official Ultra. Although it's title is only listed as a marathon it will actually be 33 miles off road and through riverbeds and such. I am real excited and more then ready for the race. I have toned down my pace some and began to up my mileage a bit more then normal. I am also placing some specialized runs in to the program. I ran a 17 mile long run on Sunday and decided to run through the water at the beach for a few miles out and back. It was a fun change of pace and the waves, even though minor, just about knocked me down a couple of times. The race will be in Vermont and is all off road and at times will have me running through a river bed and crossing a river with the aid of a rope. I have included a link to the page just to give you some fun reading. http://www.ultimatexc.com/JAY.html Liz and I will fly out Thursday July 24th and spend some valuable time with a friend from the MCM forum and return back on Sunday July 27th. I wish there was more time but work really has me bogged down. Come back later for updates.
