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!!
