Hamster Endurance Run in August

Per James, today:


I told him from the start it was hilly.  He said, “Noooo, it’s not hilly, it’s flat!”

If I complete my goal of 20 miles during this run, I will have climbed almost 2000 feet… and if he completes his 50K, he will have climbed about 3500 feet.

So there ya go.  It’s hilly.  Because everywhere you go in the Pacific Northwest is hilly.

Super nice bling.  Yes, I train for the bling… and you know this.  If you enjoy reading recaps of how training is going, check out Jamesy’s most recent post.  He gives a great summary.

Okay, I’m shameless… it’s my husband, and his blog doesn’t show up on the Reader as he is self-hosted.  But there are a lot of long distance runners out there who might be able to relate to him, so I thought I’d put his blog out there for all to see.

He really is running 22 miles today, and the weather conditions are not in his favor.  I’m attempting 8 just for the heck of it.  Hopefully the caffeine will kick in soon…
