Finally signed up for races for 2019. Heading back to The Ouray 100 to try to better my time of 45:56 from last year. https://www.ouray100.com/
My trip report from last year: http://www.hikingrmnp.org/2018/08/2018-ouray-100.html
There is also a documentary about it on Amazon if you are a prime member.
Also signed up for the Plain 100 in Washington in September. http://www.plain100.com/
Looks like that will be pretty hard, but in a different way. Essentially self supported, no pacers, no aid stations, and no course marking. Apparently people have gotten lost for hours on one part of the course. I’m arriving two days ahead of time to check out that section a few times. Should be fun... in some sense of the word.

The Plain 100 is in some beautiful country.  Definitely looks like a fun race....  If you're into running 100 miles all at once.

I have heard of plain 100 and know someone who signed up. Sounds like a really crazy race!

I just came across this post! Idk how I've missed it for so long sorry for the long ish post...

Anyway I started running years ago for weight loss and did my first marathon in 2012 ans have done 50+ marathon or greater distances. 5 of those 50milers, 100k and 1 100m.

I'm not fast my PR for marathon is 3:42, although that being said that was pre trail roadie days. I seemed to slow down a bit when I got on the trail.

My milage and races have kinda died down a bit after my last 100M (Oil Creek 100) and I would consider what Ive done is enough to finish/survive a 50k/marathon.

Im looking at a few 50 milers this year and maybe a fall 100. So now im in the building phase of training.  I really wanna be around mid 40s, my last few weeks were mid 20s so not too far to go.

Trail stuff im looking at is cayuga trails 50M/mohican 50 then looking at some 100Ms for the fall. These are all races I've done and at least know what im getting into


I'm in the strava group already too

Well, another pair of Wave Rider 21s have been shitcanned.
I got all of 200 miles out of them before they were bald and my ankles started to seriously hurt.  :(
WTF.
Hopefully my Brooks Ghost 11s will last longer.
I know violence is not the answer, I got it wrong on purpose

I started out in the wave riders years ago. They didn't hold up great.

I've run in Brooks glycerins and ghosts for the last 5+ years and had nothing but good luck with them

Hopefully they wil be just what your looking for

I'm a heavier runner and typically buy them at 350ish then switch the pair I was running in as a wearing around pair.But when I retire them they have a lot of life left.

The ghosts have a little less cushion than the glycerins and a little higher drop I believe, but not much difference than that.

My first pair of brooks were the glycerin 6s they are at 17 now

Thanks!
I've been turning my bald Wave Runners into gardening shoes. I get these rubber "shoelaces" and then they're slip ons.
Hopefully I can get as much life out of the Brooks as you. I've been trying to stretch my shoes out and it's been turning into injuries.

Looks like a great run! Nice work  :)

Good to see that area is coming back after the fires a few years ago. Rainshadow running does some totally AMAZING races based in the CRG. Gorges waterfalls 100k/50k is the race. It was always on my list, just never got to it....yet!!
