So it seems that 2012 is determined to teach me to be more flexible with my plans. Remember Plan C, running Ragnar Northwest Passage? Now I’m on to Plan D. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like an endurance relay is going to happen this year. I’m not giving up on a relay. I’m just postponing it until next year. When I finally made the decision to postpone a relay I sent Chad an email to let him know that
- I would not be running Ragnar in July.
- I want to run a 50K instead.
- A Color Run 5K and Color Me Rad 5K are coming to Cincinnati and I want to run, if not both, at least one of them. His reply…
With me so clearly not being a go-with-the-flow kind of person I laughed at myself and thought…this is me being flexible! Just going with the flow :)
So, on to Plan D. I’m determined to
try and run an ultra of some sort this year so my new goal is to run a 50K in the fall. That’s 30.07 miles! Yikes!
Chad has been trying to get me to run Germantown 50K Trail Run with him (it was his first ultra). It’s a possibility but not ideal with wanting to run 2 half marys in September and one of them being my goal race for the year. I’ll find something and make it work!
I was curious about times. How long does it take to run 30 miles? Last year’s Germantown results if you’re in the top 10…
On the other hand you have almost 10 hours of running. And it should not go without saying that’s 10 hours of trail running!
I’ll end this week’s Fitness Friday post with this. Just because I like it
Its it in your nature to be flexible and go with the flow? Have you or would you run an ultramarathon? Have you run any of the “color” 5Ks?
