Training for Big Horn 100

Ok; June 19, 2009, I declare, I am running the Big Horn 100. I ran the 50 last year. This will be my very first 100, and at age 54 I'm not getting any younger and since this is on my "bucket" list, I have to do it now.

The Big Horn 100 is one of the tougher runs. The altitude, the vertical change, the temp differences, will make it quite the run.

To prepare, as you will see, I am planning a half marathon in February, a 50 in April, and the Memorial Day Los Angeles Marathon. I need to find another race in there somewhere.
