Training Wheels.

Bandera is locked in. Just the 50 km distance because, hey, I'm a wuss. Or something like that. Really, it's about enjoying the experience and not trashing myself a month before Rocky.
Speaking of which, registration for that fun, soggy, mess-of-a-run opens on May 25th for the 100 mile. Foolish, foolish, foolish man that I am, I already booked a hotel within walking distance of Whataburger. (Taquitos are supreme ultra running breakfast fuel.) Come hell or high water (and probably both), I'll be out there running five 20 mile loops through Huntsville State Park next February.
So the training has officially begun in earnest. Here is the long run schedule, cobbled together through extensive analysis and expert planning (or not). Shorter runs, cycling, golf, weightlifting, and beer drinking (etc.) will be interspersed spontaneously and as appropriate.
