My training has been great for the month of May and here I go into another race. Aside from having to travel to California over the weekend AND having a nasty head cold which keep me from running all weekend, I am feeling very prepared and excited for these next couple of races.
Timp Trail Marathon is in its first year and looks to be a classic. Race directors are Marc Sanderson and Shaun Christian both experienced ultra runners who have put together a gnarly little course that should provide quite the thrill. With 8,700 ft of gain and loss with 100% dirt this marathon should be a challenge. I know I'm excited. You can still sign up or at least put it on the calender for next year. I was out on the course today and it was amazing! I have no idea about competition but I plan to go 90% and test my fitness. Saving the A game for Squaw Peak.
Didn't get my long run in on the Squaw course last week but I've got a couple runs planned over the next week, so I'll soon post some course updates. Weather is awesome so get out on those trails!
