Last Minute Update: 50 Miler this Weekend!

Since I'm finally getting over the sickness that kicked my butt at Run Rabbit Run two weeks ago, and because I  happened to hear about it in time, I just registered for the inaugural Bear Chase 50 miler in Lakewood, CO this weekend.

It looks like it could possibly be the fastest course I've ever raced for the 50 mile distance, with only 3600 ft of cumulative elevation gain... Can you say PR???

Goal: 6 hours and 55 minutes.
I have no overall placement goals since I don't have any idea who's registered, other than Jamie Donaldson, aka Miss Badwater herself!

You have made me incrdibly jealous...I moved to Alamosa at the beginning of July and had pencilled this in as one the races that I was dying to do this fall. Unfortunately I don't get weekends off and have had to cancel all my racing plans. Best of luck chasing the bear, good sir.

There's only one Bear. But good luck anyways!

Congrats on your PR and 3rd place overall finish! I also did the race Sunday. I did the 50k though. I just moved to Colorado and not in shape for a 50 miler yet. By the way I live in Colorado Springs too. Maybe we will meet at some point.
