My next race is a little over a month away. The Mendon Trail Run is the last race in the USATF Niagra Ultra Series. Last year, Cole Crosby won in a course record 3:41:55.
This year, the race includes local celebrity Jason Mcelwain. If you recall, Jason was involved in one of the greatest
sports stories you will ever see:
While Jason’s fame came on the basketball court, he has turned into a very successful runner. Just this year, he ran the Boston Marathon in 2:57:05. As far as I can tell, the Mendon 50k will be his first ultra.
The full participant list is available here.
I am still recovering from the Virgil Crest 50-Miler. I ran three miles yesterday and a few more today. I’m hoping to increase my training by the start of October. That way, I’ll be able to get in a couple of good weeks of training before tapering.
When is your next race? Are you ready for it?
