Trail Mix 50K

Joel, Marty and Eric Swanson before the races. Eric is a budding ultra runner.

Started out too fast. Ran every step of the first loop. 8:40 miles.
2nd, 3rd and 4th laps were not as exciting. Actually, a lot less exciting and more grueling.

This Saturday...Chippewa Moraine 50K. Yeah! Single track, forested, fences, bridges, not 4 loops.

The gondola lift seems like a cruel joke. I'm not a runner, but it seems to me that it would be like somebody walking past with a rotisserie chicken while I'm fasting. (I've never really fasted either. wah-wah.)

Nice pics. That trail looks more like a road. :) Congrats on the 50K! Next one sounds like more fun.
