Hello.

 

I haven't provided an update in a while, so I'm going to do a short one now because I'm procrastinating doing real work.

 

A week and a half ago I ran an ultramarathon (50k) at Lake Tahoe. It was gorgeous. It looked like this:

It was fantastic and wonderful and I'm moving there again as soon as I can, much to certain people's likely chagrin.

 

I have another ultra in another week and a half. I'm hoping to run 40 - 50 miles (65k - 80k), as it's a 12 hour challenge rather than a set distance. Two weeks after that race I have a back to back Sprint Triathlon and Half Ironman Triathlon (Sprint on Saturday, Half on Sunday) on a course that is supposed to be one of the hardest in the United States. This is part of the bike course at 34% grade:


If you make it to the top without falling, they put your name on a brick in the road.

 

Then after THAT race, I have a four part race over three days - a 4.3 trail run on Friday, a 5k and 10k on Saturday, and a half marathon on Sunday.

 

And then finally, three weeks after that one, I have an ultramarathon (another 50k) in Kentucky with an insane amount of climbing. The course elevation map looks like this:

There's my two second update. If this actually generates any interest, I'll put up race recaps after. Vicarious suffering FTW.

Sounds/looks pretty crazy to me.  Have fun - I'll be chasing a 2 year old instead (no bricks for me, unless you count her diaper).
