NO. This blog isnt dead....
The big thing that has taken up a majority of my time this late winter and early spring has been the Potato Creek Trail runs. Its has not been since 1993 that a trail race has taken place out at Potato Creek State Park. My wife and I decided last September that we felt as though we had to put this race on. We wanted to donate the proceeds of this race to the scholarship fund at the kids school. I can say now in hindsight it is much easier to run the race than it is the manage it. It was a great experience for me and I learned so much about how to manage a race, deal with difficult people, and work crazy hours for no pay. A real character builder. :-) For those of you who want more info on the race surf on over to the blog. Potato Creek Trail Runs.
This past weekend I was fortunate enough to run the Dances with Dirt relay with my brother-in-law and his friends down in Gnaw Bone, Indiana. This is the funnest ( is that a word?) run I do all year. Imagine people in costume covering 5k-10k distance thru some of the worst ilk possible. Its great! This run has also helped me get back on track with consistent run mileage. I hope to take the training leading up to this and funnel it into more training for a fall 50 miler. It all depends on what kind of time I can chisel out. I am looking at a few 50 milers right now and have not committed to anything yet. Once I am able to nail down more of a schedule I can then move forward with getting ready and training. I'll keep up on the posts as well; and get some photos up of the t-bucket as time permits. I have to get that thing on the road. Right now I am shooting for July.
