Cactus Rose
100mi & 50mi Trail Run
Bandera Texas - 30 Oct 2010
5am Sat - (36hr limit) - 4pm Sun

I will run the 100mi trail on October 30, which will be the weekend of my 33rd birthday. To give you a little background on how this blog started I have to take you back almost 2 years ago....JT was running the AT&T marathon here in Austin, and I was his anchor leg for the last 6 miles. After finishing the run and getting to witness all the competitors bust their ass for 4 hours or more and then getting to run down Congress Avenue towards the finish line...I got inspired! I started my blog the next day, which was going to log all my workouts till the following year in which I was going to run the AT&T marathon. Needless to say, I decided against it when the time came around to sign up for it. Fast forward to 2 weeks ago, I picked up Born To Run by Christopher McDougall and couldn't put it down! It awoken that inner longing inside of me that LOVES to run.... Cactus Rose 100mi, or die trying.
