I've been inspired!

I have decided i'm going to do the Canadian Death Race next year!! I am pumped! Isn't it funny how you can already be so excited for something a year away? A girl I know from the Trail Trash group I run with did it this year and rocked it. She has totally inspired me!! And since i've been hooked since my first and only ultra so far this year...the Scorched Sole 50km...i've been busy planning next year's season of ultras already! This has been such a great summer! I can't wait for Transrockies! Only 12 days till I leave for Colorado and 17 till race day!

Oh...one more thing...anyone out there looking for a pacer for Lost Soul let me know!

  1. LOL...I think ironman is out for at least another year...especially since I won't make it there this year to sign up! Probably won't get to that until at least 2011! Are you disappointed? I'll still come and run trails in Golden if it makes you feel better hahaha.

  2. sweeet! I am thinking of doing it too. We only live 180kms from Grande Cache so it would be easy to do some training there. If so we will have to set up some training weekends!

  4. I did the Death Race (solo) last year and it was great. If you don't know the course/area, I'd recommend that you go up for one of the training camps in June or July as it's definitely an advantage come race day. If you're planning on doing it solo, without a crew, then they'll allow you to have one drop bag only placed at Hamel and this works great as you hit it prior to nightfall.
    Make sure you sign up early as this race is now getting lots of media coverage thanks to the new North Face sponsorship.
