That is the number of days I would have to prepare for the Imogene Pass Race. My brother-in-law is trying to persuade me to run the September 2013 race with him. Without checking the website, I told him that “sure, I’d run it providing I am not pregnant by June” – haha! I’m always up for a challenge and finally feel the body is willing to comply. Then I saw the actual course profile. 17 miles / 27 km, or 10mi uphill and 7 downhill. Whaaaat? Is that even fun? How the heck do I train for that, living at half that altitude? The peak is 13,120 ft or 3998 meters. I have always wanted to run a mountain marathon but…can I physically handle this one? Apparently, the race is sold out within hours of them putting tickets online. It must be stunning. I would want to start training in one month from today, January 1st. My mind is churning…

    1. Ou les deux?
      Je suis toujours en train de me demander si c’est physiquement faisable dans mon état physique actuel (sain mais pas ultra sportif).
