A little something for the weekend!

This Saturday I have my first organized course run for the AC100, there are four runs like this that pretty much cover the whole course, unfortunately I missed the first one and I’ll miss the third one also, so I end up jumping in feet first Saturday night, yes night, the run starts at 6:00pm, we’ll be covering the last 26 miles of the course. The racebook describes parts of this as follows:

the Upper Winter Creek Trail rolls uphill for 3 miles to the signed 3-way Hoegee’s Junction. The AC100 course bears left up the Winter Creek Trail towards Manzanita Ridge and the Mt. Wilson Trail for 2 miles

Ok so that’s 5 miles of climbing and here’s the elevation profile. Nice of them to add the elevation gains on the bottom, just over 5000’ of climbing…sweet…err…sweat over 10 miles! I am estimating 6 hours. This run is a planned dent to my schedule knocking it sideways from the alternating long run/rides and this means that on Sunday I have 65 mile bike ride scheduled with a rest day but no rest night this week as such...
...I am just glad that next week is a step back!


  1. That's a lot of climbing! Good luck.

  2. Have fun! At least you will be with other people. Be safe. ;)

  3. it may make it sweeter knowing your load is not as heavy next week. That is a pretty serious training run. Enjoy and look forward to a report with some more amazing photos.

  4. Wish I could join you. I'll be up the week after for trail work.

  5. Good lord, that's an impressive profile . . . and at night, too! Good luck and have fun!

  6. WOW that is impressive and scary! good luck and have fun!!!
