Next Monday is the Frozen Ass 50k Ultra. I am doing the half ultra. Apparently the route is 52k so the half is 26k. This will be my longest run ever! Exciting right? Well I hope so. I actually am worried I am going to come in last. I need to run my Long Slow pace, instead of pushing. My only saving grace is that I should finish ahead of some of the 52k racers. I saw part of the course today. It looks really shitty. lumpy ice. gaaaaa… I will certainly be wearing the aquas as they have the most grip… should be fun. I LOVE racing!
After the race, we are going to the Hitmen Hockey game at the football stadium. They are having a ‘Winter Classic’ NHL game between the Calgary Flames and Montreal Canadians on Sunday, then the Junior guys get a crack at the outdoor game the next day. Should be a lot of fun!
Here we are the last time at the Stadium? Remember this post?
I had a lovely run tonight with Susan and Jim. 5.5k in 6 laps around the Good Earth Cafe shopping complex. we did laps as the sidewalks are SOOO icy. Jim described their long run from yesterday like this. “We ran 10 and 1’s. 10 minutes of slipping and 1 minute of sliding.”
Speaking of Good Earth Cafe. The Cranston Store has their own Facebook page now. Why not go there and say Hi. tell’em Barefoot Neil sent ya!
