While I have taken the last several weeks to lay back and revel in the glory of doing absolutely nothing (e.g., eaten everything in sight and consumed a lot of beer), I have to admit that this lifestyle of "all-eat-and-no-run" is not one that plays well with my psyche or my waistline. I'm feeling the itch and it needs to be scratched.
I have decided to sign up for the 2011-2012 Aravaipa Trail Ultra Series. Made up of 6 trail races, these 50k runs will be a great way to keep my fitness level high and provide a solid base in the off-chance I decide to take on a longer distance in late Spring/early Summer of 2012 (100K? 100 miles?!).
Anyone else feeling an itch?
