Birthday Run Details

Friends & Runners - As some of you already know, I've been planning and training for a "Birthday Run" to celebrate my 45 years of life by running 45 miles. I'm hoping some of you will be available and crazy enough to join me on my adventure, so I've included the details below.

I could use some company (running or on bike) on any of the segments, so take a look at the times and distances and see what works for you. I could also use some volunteers to host coolers along the route.

When: Friday, July 10, starting at 10pm and finishing Saturday July 11 in the morning.
Route Summary:
10pm-12am, 10 miles, Villa Rosa neighborhood area
1:25am-3:30am, 10 miles, Cheval run - meet at Center Yourself Pilates

4:30am-6:10am, 8 miles, Lake Park - meet in Northdale TBD location
6:30am-8:30am, 9 miles, Northdale - start and finish at Bob Sierra YMCA

The missing miles in the list above are found in transition runs from one location to another. I'll send out a more detailed route plan for anyone who is interested. Please email me back if you'd like to assist in any way and thanks for sharing in my adventure.

Date set for "Birthday Run"

July 10 - 11, 2009 has been selected for the 45 mile "birthday run". A few factors were considered:
  • Provide enough training time before the date (could have been more, but it's not getting any cooler)
  • In the month of my birthday...check
  • Nearly full moon...check
  • Since most of the actual run will take place overnight, this seemed like a good idea

More to come on the training runs, nutrition strategy and equipment I'm thinking of using.

This is one way to stay off the couch.
