I am committed or as my wife said, I should be!
From the AC100 website (my abridge):
"THIS ENTRY CONTAINS A LIMITATION ON YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS - READ IT!
I wish to enter and participate in the Angeles Crest 100 Mile Endurance Run.... I am aware that this trail run of 100 miles is extremely difficult and hazardous...difficult mountainous terrain and spans great extremes of altitude and temperature...I should not participate in this even unless: a) I am in excellent physical condition, b) I have previously run ultra-marathon distances (50 miles) on rugged trails, and c) I have recently (in the last 12 months) had a complete physical examination, including a stress electrocardiogram...I am also aware...physical injury from a number of natural factors including snow...other hazards...lack of water, communicable diseases, wildlife...during the day or at night...risks include the fact I may become injured or incapacitated in a location where it is difficult or impossible for the Run's management to get required medical aid to me in time to avoid additional physical injury, even death"....and so on!
What's an ultrarunner to do, I ask you?
