How to not pace yourself for a 50k (2013 VNYDFA50)

After printing out the Route for the New Year's Day it became clear that I needed to try and hang on to someone who knew the course if I didn't want to be stuck reading half the time and missing out on most of the experience and the scenery. By the way, I didn't see a single  person using instructions all day. Maybe everybody but me is navigationally gifted.

I knew that Dave Cressman knows the course well and was going for the full 50k.

Muddy's 2013 Fitness Goals

Somehow...somwhere, I plan to get back to running ultras this year.


Work & illness got in the way of 2012's best laid plans, so I'm hoping to get something epic, something memorable, &/or something of note done by the time the year's up. Besides the vaguery of saying that I'll "train more"...here's what's up....


-Participate in NY Fat Ass

-Judo at least twice a week

-Fastpack something more than 2 days long

Vancouver New Years Day Run - Surprise, Guys!

Heads-up if you are a man who plans to go for a run and a swim tomorrow and would like a warm shower and a place to change afterwards...

I've got some bad news:  The men's change room/shower at Brocton Oval was vandalized and is closed.  The entire men's side of the facility is still boarded-up.
