The Race: The 2014 Pistol Ultra on January 4th 2014 at 8:00 AM Eastern
Race Distance: 50k (31.07 miles)
Random info to give you assistance in guessing or Analysis Paralysis:
Haven’t run this race yet, in fact, I have never run this particular race distance. Furthermore, I have never run this far… ever!
Here’s an excerpt from the non-Pulitzer winning race report for the 2012 Chickamauga Marathon:“It was so nice to get to chat with Susan while actually running and not on via the intertubes. I told her I doubted I would ever run an ultra marathon (a race greater than 26.2 miles) because at that point I had logged in about 28 miles and felt like crap. Of course, that was just crazy talk… I think there’s a 50k in me. :)”
