My fall racing scheduleSeptember 4, 2009
On September 7th, I’ll run the Super Jock ‘N Jill Half Marathon in Woodinville, Washington. Then I’ll do a few local cross-country races with the Seattle Running Club. Then on November 21st, I’ll be at the JFK 50 Mile in Washington County, Maryland.
There are plenty of reasons to try to run well at JFK. A sub-6-hour time would get me into the qualifying pool for the 2010 U.S. World Cup 100K team. There’s a bit of prize money on the line, including $600 for 1st place and an additional $500 for beating the course record (Eric Clifton’s 5:46:22 from 1994). And there will be plenty of fast guys to compete against, with Pete Breckinridge, Matthew Lavine, and Oz Pearlman being just a few of the names I see on the entrant list.
