Whistler 50 Ultra: October 20, 2012

I just noticed that the Whistler 50 (mile) Relay and Ultra will be held on October 20 this year. That's serious food for thought.

I am focused on improving my marathon time before anything else, and am considering  the California International Marathon in early December as my second marathon for 2012.

However, the 2011 edition of the Whistler 50, which I ran in 7:57 after two fast marathons in the previous six weeks, also convinced me that a sub-7 finish should be possible on rested legs.

An October event (lowering the potential for ice and snow, i.e. worries about footing) is very tempting indeed. Ah choices!
