100 MTB Race

Well this Sunday I am contemplating a little jaunt through some neighboring counties in the Western New York area.

presents the 3rd annual...Humbler

It should be interesting to say the least. More to follow on it after the race itself occurs on Sunday!

So I am in the process of increasing my running mileage in preperation for The Philadelphia Marathon on Thanksgiving weekend. I am probably late in the season for doing this race managably, but I know I can finish it, I just want to finish it in under 4 hours. I want to see a 3 for the hour when I go under the finish line! It will be my 3rd marathon (or longer) this year which I feel really good about since I have been injury free all year long. Hopefully I make it through this race in the same state as I enter it - injury free and really looking forward to some 50K, 50 Milers and maybe a 100 miler next year. The ultimate lead up to the Umstead 100 in 2010.

My sister and I are contemplating the Leadville 100 as well in 2010 or 2011. All this training will make that less painful than it is going to be hopefully. We will see how that plays out!
