I was thinking about this race whole week and just could not get it out of my mind. It is really like an obsession, I almost feel ashamed that as a grown-up man I get sooo enthusiastic about something like a little kid. I just can’t wait till September and I decided to sign-up for 50K. In these days I began to harras all my friends with running, and I am afraid that there will be a time they will not be able to stand me anymore.
But in the meantime I might have infected a couple of those, and we even went to inspect the course of the first leg in the Pinckney State Recreation area on Sunday. We ran together for an hour on a pretty extreme trail and I was totaly amazed that all my three friends decided for this practice run and were even able to get out there with me, although none of them ever ran for more than 30 minutes in one time.
The team competition is a 100K relay with 15 legs. The team consists of 5 runners, each of them running 3 different legs. Now they my friends are three and not yet completely decided to commit themselves to this crazyness … but who knows … how will this evolve.
... and I am soooo tempted. Good part of the race are very hilly trails in Michigan wilderness near around the town of Hell. The rest is off trail, through swamps, rivers, even through lakes. Just to give you the idea some parts of the course have even official names like: “The Stampede”, “Rave Run”, “Butt Kicker”, “Go Straight to Hell”, “Bloody Hell”, “This Sucks”, “Muddy Hell”, “Where’s the F’N Bridge” and etc … you can participate in a 100K relay or run alone 50K or 50miles. I checked my calendar and it seems I may be able to go for 50K alone. Anybody want to join me ?
