I'd love to do one of the bigger 100M races but may start with a 50M to see how it goes.
Jbarwick: What ultras have you run before and what type of terrain are you used to? There are quite a few ultras in the states of many lengths. Not sure how familiar you with them all or if you have some in mind as it is a vacation. Most of them are in winter (south), spring (everywhere) and fall (everywhere). If you are out of commission until Dec., a spring run may be tough to train for in time.

Yikes SB, what happened. I'm in my taper for 2 weeks and have missed 2 workouts now due to being sick, but should be back in business tomorrow. How back are you hurt?
