Quote from blog post 2/9/10:
Yep, that’s what I wrote a couple months ago after finishing a muddy 50k Ultra in Woodside with some friends. I felt like I was done with these Ultra’s in the mountains. A day later, we (the four of us that ran the Woodside Ultra) were conversing via email about another Ultra in April, but only doing the marathon distance. Here is how I responded:
“I’m leaving my calendar open for a couple weeks to decide what I’m going to do… but keep me posted. I’m sure I can be talked into running anything. And if we do it, might as well tack on the extra flippin’ 5 miles.”
As you can see, it doesn’t take much suggestion for me to pull a Brett Frave or a Michael Jordan and un-retire.
This weekend, I’ll be running Skyline to the Sea, a 50k from Saratoga to (just North of) Santa Cruz. Lori, who I have mentioned before, is looking to burn some stress and let it all out over a 31 mile adventure… and who am I to let her enjoy all the fun all by herself? So when she asked me last month, I told her that if I felt good and healthy after Oakland, that I would run it with her. Sure, why not.
