I'm changing the plans for my upcoming 100 miler race director debut. I had planned to put on the Holy Jim 100 in December but I'm changing it to probably the last weekend in May (Memorial Weekend). Several factor for the change include: more time to plan for such a big undertaking, having the 100 Miler after Twin Peaks instead of before, no chance of snow and 20 degree temperatures overnight, more daylight hours, and an alternative to all those turned away by Western States (which is 3 weeks later). It also gives people a chance to put it on their 2008 race calendar since more people have their 2007 calendar set in stone already.
In other news I sent my registration for a few races today - Holcomb Valley in June, Lake Tahoe 50K in July and Where's Waldo in August. I have a lot of training ahead of me to get ready for WW and I'll be looking for a pacer as well. Any volunteers?
My family is coming into town for a few days (starting tomorrow) for my birthday. Saturday is the San Juan 50K but I can't go to that since they will be here. We are having an OCTR/birthday party that night which should be a lot of fun. Us Trail Runners know how to have a good time! :)
