The Umstead 100 Mile Race is a beginner's 100 Mile Race - perfect for me. It is in Raleigh, NC next to the RDU airport. Check out the website at www.umstead100.org. The race is March 31, 2012. If all goes well I will complete the race in under 24 hours. I have 40 lbs to drop and thousands of miles to run in 206 days. That is 1.4 lbs per week of weight loss and about 2000 miles of running before March 31st. Yes I will eat, sleep, work, run and run more. Lots of veggies (need all the nutrients I can get). If you follow this blog, be active and reply. And be honest. If you think I am slacking off, flame me!!! If you think I am doing good, encouragement never hurts. This will be one incredible journey. Hope you enjoy.
