I have a race goal for January now, Ponderous Posterior Pikes Peak 50K. It is the 14th of January and they are running the course in reverse this year, which means a mandatory trip up the incline. Anyone up for it? I already put it on my schedule.
Finally, in more of a mountain running vein, there will be a reprisal of the Front Range Fat Ass Series again this off-season, kicking off with getting back to the Basics here in Boulder at the end of October, and then moving on to The Chubster up in Fort Collins on December 10th and finishing up with The Ponderous down in Manitou Springs on January 14, 2012. We'll be running the Ponderous loop in the opposite, clock-wise direction this year, which means we might as well get the tradition off on the right foot and make a mandatory ascent of the Incline the official course if one is planning on completing the full 30ish+ mile/8000'-ish loop. ~ Anton Krupicka Original Post
