Interested In Doing An Ultra?

Chris and I love the Avalon 50 in Catalina Island, which will be held in 2011 on Sat., Jan 15th.  While Chris has many ultras under his belt (which, I must share is NOT fastened with either his Western States 100 belt buckle, nor his Angeles Crest 100!),  I've almost always stuck to marathoning as the longest running race.  UNTIL…

I raced this course in 2008.  

I was a bit daunted initially, but, trusting my husband implicitly, I decided to go ahead and give it a go.

We popped into the race and both fared really well!  He's always at the top, or not far, and I was happy with my 4th woman overall, given the facts that it was an off season fun run and my first 50.

If you're interested, have a look at the race site:


It's a great race to have as a goal to keep your eating on track with the #PaleoDiet through the holidays!!
