We Signed Up for an ULTRA!!!!!!

BREAKING NEWS:
WE JUST SIGNED UP FOR OUR FIRST ULTRA! We are running the Pineland Farms Trail Running Festival 50 km at the end of May! Woohoo! We are so excited. We just signed up together tonight. Miss Bethany is also running her first Barefoot 5km on the day before the 50km, also as part of the Trail Running Festival. 


AND . . . . 

WE JUST SIGNED UP FOR THE ANCHORAGE ALASKA MAYOR'S MARATHON!!!! Miss Bethany's parents are driving there for about 3 months in the RV, so we decided, why not fly out to meet them, and run a marathon there!!! 


We can't wait!!!!

Promise we'll have our complete Boston Marathon post coming up later at some point this week!!!! Stay tuned!!!

Very exciting summer ahead for you guys. I love Maine, and the race looks exciting. I haven't been to Alaska yet, but it will be great for sure. Fun times!

Rebecca said...

Awesome! I will be running Mayor's marathon too! Never been to AK before, looking forward to it!

How fun! I'll be racing in Alaska this summer too, but I'm running with my dad, so we are doing a 10 mile race. Have an awesome time!

You crazy kids, I love your new plans, especially the ultra! How exciting. I'm kind of jealous that you have SO many goals and plans already! Hugs.

I just came across your blog from Caution Redhead Running's Bloggy Breakfast meetup post. I'll be running the 50k at Pineland too. I'm so excited because it's my first Ultra. My hubby (who has been racing Ultras for a few years) is racing the 50 miler.

I'm so jealous about you getting to run in Alaska though.

Marlene said...

I was seriously considering the Pineland 50K, but it does not fit this year. And Alaska, how awesome!

Hmmm...and you thought I was crazy for running two marathon's within 6 days? LOL! That sounds like a blast and an ultra is on my list of things to do!!!
Can't wait to read about the training :)
