Guess I've gotta come clean

Ever since crossing the finish line at Run Rabbit Run last year and thinking to myself, "I could actually keep going," I've been thinking about doing a 100.  I haven't said much about it (here) because I haven't really wanted to say anything "permanent".


Monday my wife accepted a new position with a new institute.  In fact, she's the boss.  Now we are one hundred percent set for the next several years.  When we moved, we'd hoped that she'd get set up with a job like this one sooner, but she just needed a bit more time.

This means I've got time to run.

Look at that buckle...
Today I was looking at the website for the Keys 100, an ultra that starts in Key Largo and goes to Key West.  I first came across this race when Googling for "Florida Ultras" some time back and I mentioned it to an old friend - Running Moose.  They haven't opened registration for next year's race yet, but I'll be one of the first entrants for sure.  Hopefully he will be too - I haven't seen Mr. Moose since High School...

Anyway, the reason I mention all of this stuff is that I was reading race reports this morning from the 2010 race and came across the wiki of Jonathan Savage, 2010's Keys 100 winner.  He's got a report from the race, but his wiki has so much more.  Really useful stuff for runners.

So now I have 2 race goals for the coming year.

Thanks for reading, and stay safe out there.

  1. I'm looking forward to it, too! I originally thought it was Memorial Day weekend, but it looks like it's a couple weeks before which is awesome! I'll be able to use personal days without a problem. I'm definitely not up for the 100 (nor would I be at that time). I didn't look at race start times, but I'm only up for 50 and am not worried about time. If you would get through the 50 point a lot later, I can just hang out after the start (depending on how long...not sure if if I would if you'd be there a couple hours after a start...) for you to reach that point and try to hang with you for a while to keep you/ us going for a while. It should be fun! I'm looking forward to following Western States this weekend, too!
