Keltisch 30KM

Ran a nice 30KM today!
Aside from the lovely environment, the weather, and my trusty
iPod the hardest part of today's run was getting bored.

What do you do while out running a long run to avoid
getting bored? Boredom can be a real challenge
for me when heading out on a multi-hour run.

I did run past this great Celtic Burial Site. I've been
walking and running in these woods since 2004 and

UTMB 2011

All right friends... I think I forgot to mention this, but... I pre-registered for the 2011 UTMB. OK, I know - I was/am very tempted to blow the whole commercialized thing off. After all, the organizers still owe me 100 Euro for last year's disaster (they are still trying to figure out how to reimburse everyone), pre-registration cost me 50 Euro and I have to wait to find out if there will be a raffle, and if there is a raffle for start numbers I may get kicked, and chatter on the UTMB's web forum is not too friendly...

I don't know for certain what got into my head except the fact that the UTMB is still out there. It is reputed as one of the ultimate ULTRAs. And, I've not completed it.

So why all the questions... I'll figure that out in the next several months.

I'm off to register for the Thüringen ULTRA; registration should have opened today.

Keep running...

Enchanted Forest - Eye of the Needle - Gut Check

21KM of three of my favorite local runs all on New Year's Day. What a great way to start off 2011...
