Back to the Promise Land
Promise Land 2007 (Me, Lehmann, Potts, Gillanders)
I'm excited to be heading back to the PromiseLand 50K this weekend after a long hiatus. The only other time I've been able to run this race was in 2007.I can’t believe it’s taken me four years to get back! Training for the MMT-100 in '08 and '09 kept me away and an injury in '10 was the hindrance in returning.This is one of my all-time favorite ultras and I’m excited to get the opportunity to run it once again.Since I’m starting the AT in less than 2-weeks, I’m going to be running very easy and will be pacing my friend Dave Simmons. This will be Dave's third ultra and hopefully one of his most enjoyable and successful ultra finishes.There’s nothing like the freshness of spring and the opportunity to spend a day in the mountains with over 300 of my favorite folks!
