Do you ever wonder if there is something out there that you CAN'T buy on the internet?
Me neither. I can almost guarantee that anything you can think of someone already makes and sells.
It's inspiring and disturbing all at the same time.
But I still REALLY want a pair of these boots!
A couple quick updates before any more time passes on:
We are again a Trail Runner Trophy Series race in 2013 and you'll find a story in March 2013's Trail Runner Magazine on the race on page 26.
We also are a 4 point qualifier for UTMB and their other races again this year. You need 7 total I believe for UTMB.
We will not be a qualifier for Western States or Hardrock 100 this year unless something changes.
We have currently a stellar entrants list for this fall with James Bonnett, Liza Howard, Steven Moore, Keira Henninger, Katherine Metzger, Jay Danek, Davy Crockett and many others already signed up. Last year we were in April before getting to 30 entrants. We had 30 entrants before February this year and they keep coming in. We have a runner coming from Australia as well as the UK for this race specifically which is very exciting as well as the return of 9 runners from last years race that have unfinished business in making it to the finish line.
I'm still working out a schedule for potential dates for training runs throughout the summer this year for runners to see the course and get to know the area. We'll have at least one run a month starting in May through September. I'm working on a Fat Ass style 50K for late August as well for one last long run before the race.
If you are not running the Zane Grey 50M this year on April 27th, we'll have likely one to two weekends prior to the race to get on the course for marking and clearing of the Highline Trail. This would count for the required 8 hours of volunteer work for your entry and also helps us out given some of the Zane Grey is also Mogollon Monster territory. There are also always people looking for a pacer for the last 17 miles of Zane Grey you could try and jump in with to experience the course. Pacing those 17 miles are not Mogollon Monster miles but you'll get a feel for what you're getting into just the same.
We're looking forward to another great year and seeing all of you this fall. I'll try and update the race progress as much as I can throughout and the training schedule once I have it worked out with the Mrs. and my work schedule.
