Oopsie, I just registered for a 50mile ultramarathon -- my first ultra. I've crewed/been a pacer at two, and have had the itch to run one myself for years.
Turns out my sister is getting married August 2014, I'll definitely be witnessing that event, wouldn't miss it for the world... as I was casually browsing Canadian running race calendars and whaddayaknow credit card slipped through my hands, bam, I am registered for the Squamish 50 miler, one week before my sister becomes a newlywed. Very exciting!
Now, how far is 50 miles again????
