I'm not 100% there. 'There' being back to where I was prior to my leggy breaky thing, but I am progressing. Dropping some weight, getting some longer runs in, albeit only a few times a week at present, but I'm feeling good about my prospects of running an ultra next season. Due to run Ragnar again next year with some friends of mine whom I've known for a long time. I'm looking forward to it. I'm really hoping the Kettle 100 is not the same weekend, which it has been periodically in the past. If so I'll need to pick another race, but I was considering tackling the Gnarly Bandit series, which is a series of 5 ultras in a calender year in the Midwest. Everyone who finishes all 5 will split $1000 at the end of the year. Usually it's about 5 people. I don't care about the money. I want bragging rights. If I get some serious mojo working, North Face Endurance Challenge Gore-Tex 50 is in a few weeks. I've half a mind to just do it with no real expectations time-wise other than finishing. Well, I'll keep working on my giddy-up, and check back with y'all later. Happy trails!
