Glimpse of heaven taste of hell

TRT 50 Mile Run

Most of last year I spent hoping to qualify for Western states 100M and when I finally did, I didnt get through WS 100 lottery. It isnt that dissapointing mainly because of my class schedule coincides with the races and so does our travel plans.

So after lot of enthusiatic mails from Rajeev, Chihping and Alan, I decided about TRT 100. Yep, finally taken big step today towards running/walking/crawling through a 100 mile race at beautiful place called Tahoe.

I had run 50 mile race at this course in 2006 and was totally enticed by this course, which includes breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe from 8500ft peaks. The entire course is run above 8000 ft so Altitude is definately gonna be challenge and need to do some runs to deal with that.

Overall it is going to be a big challenge coping up with training, time with family, striking a good balance with work will be very essential!

I need support from my dear wife, who will have to deal with some weekends being hogged by races and recovery and all the post race talk!!
