Certifiably Crazy

So my dear friend Marcella talked me in to signing up for this. It's in June. It's in June and it's almost May. It's almost May and I'm just starting to train. Let me break it down for you:

Distance: 180 miles- from Logan to Park City, UT
Time: 24 hours
Craziness Factor: 99%


I'm actually really excited. I've always wanted to do a half marathon, and I'm saying this counts... okay, okay, maybe it won't count, but it's a first step toward that goal, right? This race is a 12 man (or woman) relay. I'll be running 3 legs (ranging in 3 miles to 8.5 miles) over a 24 hour period. If I can just get to a point where I can run/jog for more than 10 minutes without feeling like I'm busting a gut, I might feel slightly ready.

p.s. Anyone else interested in doing this? 3 spots open.

I run when chased. Thanks, though.

Wow! Good luck! If it were in California (& I weren't pregnant), I'd do it with you. It's amazing what a difference the altitude makes. I could barely breathe when I went jogging while I was up there last month!

Wow Kat, that's awesome! You can totally do it. So wait are you going to be running a 8.5 mile stint??? I've only run 2 miles straight. But if you're training you can totally get up there. Good luck!
