So thinking about all of that during one of my many easy jogs, I came up with a plan to celebrate my PR for consecutive-days-alive. Last year I turned 29, and ran 29 miles of the Chubb trail with some awesome people, and then we ate some awesome wings. This year, I wanted to stick with the 30 theme, but running 30 miles seemed so...forgive me...last year. What to do, what to do. And then I heard about a 12hr running race being planned by Metro Tri Club, the same fine folks who bring us the joy and pain of PMETR. They are calling it the Aeries February Freeze Tall Timber Trail Run. My birthday is January 29th, and the race starts on January 31st! Tempting, but how could I make running 12 hours significant to turning 30 years old? I thought about it, and then out of thin air my answer appeared...30 HOURS OF BEING 30.
It's simple, but not easy. I will need help. That is where you come in. There are a lot more details to be filled in, but if you are interested you will need to start preparing now, which is why I'm posting this today. Here is the rough plan:
PART 2: FRIDAY 31-JANUARY
Well we will be running into this morning because the MTC race goes until 9am. Then at 10am they are having a 1-loop-only race, too! So you could do that! No guarantees for my own participation in the 1-looper but if there's cake I will stick around! The rest of the day will be spent sleeping.
