I am now completely convinced that the reason the North Face race registration Web site was down for four days was the universe trying to tell me not to register for the 50k portion of a race festival the weekend of June 4.
But the site started working again. And so I registered. Seventy-five bucks seems like a bargain for 31 miles , right? Plus registration includes a t-shirt! Sweet! I need more of those. The three bins of race shirts that live underneath our guest bed need more company.
As soon as I hit the "confirm" button I'd wondered what I had done. 2011 was supposed to be the year of backing off a bit but now I find myself registered for sort of a lot of races.
How does one train for a trail 50k? I am not really sure, but I am going to guess that it includes a lot of running.
Unrelated: Here's a link to a guest post on Have Dental Floss, Will Travel a few weeks ago. Just in case you were wondering why I like to adventure race. Really, it is all about the peanut M&Ms.
