3 Ultras - 10 Weeks

I am one week from my 2nd TNF 50 Miler in DC, also the site of my first ever 50 miler and I can't wait to see Tani at the finish again (this time with Isla and Kyle; Jared has a lax tournament). I had been looking forward to this again in September 2010 but for some reason it was moved up to June this year. So for me to run DC this year it meant adding one more race in a very short period of time.

Before last year I had run 3 marathons in 7 years, all NYC in 2001, 2007 and 2008. In my last post I wrote about my ultra anniversary (first was Bear Mt 50k May 2009). Now 3 weeks later I am mentally preparing for my 3rd race in 10 weeks and 6th in less than 10 months (1 marathon and 5 ultras).

Sept 2009 TNF DC 50 Mi.
Nov 2009 Stone Cat Trail Marathon
Nov 2009 Knickerbocker 60k
March 2010 Umstead 100 Mi.
May 2010 TNF Bear Mt. 50 Mi.
June 2010 TNF DC 50 Mi. (coming soon)

While I can't deny the feelings the personal achievement has brought me I hope that I am raising awareness for the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation and that this year's fundraising which will officially begin later this summer will be more successful than all years past (you are of course welcome to click fundraising now too:).

To all those who courageously fight cancer, you inspire me to never give up.
