Couch to 237.7--yes that's miles

"If your dreams don't scare you they are not big enough"
--Ellen Johnson Sirleaf

All my running friends know that I have fallen off the wagon the last several months.  This is going to be the ultra year.  I plan to go from sitting on my butt and gaining 20 lbs. to setting a fastest known time running the Katy Trail in November 2016.  The goal will be 3-1/2 to 4 days to complete the longest rails to trails project in the nation.  I am working out the training/racing program now, so stay tuned for details.  What's your opinion, is a 100 miler, like Thunder Rock to long to be considered a training run?

As part of my goals, I will also plan to bring more awareness to a local rails to trails project I am working on in Madison County.   Here is the Facebook link, please go like that page as well.
