I'm currently in central British Columbia on my way back to Juneau. This is the worst time of year to be in Juneau but I really need to make some money and get organized for a permanent departure from Juneau which will likely happen sometime in December of January.
Pretty soon here I'm going to begin training more seriously again. Ever since the Wasatch 100 I've mostly been resting, with a small amount of hiking and running. Once I begin building my fitness back up I'm planning to focus on building up my speed more than I have this entire year.
Why speed? Well, the first week of December I'm going to head down to San Francisco to run in the North Face Endurance Challenge, a 50 miler with a $10,000 prize for the winner! I'd like to think that I have the endurance and the strength to give myself a chance to win this race but where I might come up short is in my lack of raw speed in a race where there are likely to be a few people running who have gone under a 2:20 marathon. It'll be a longshot but I must say it'd be pretty sweet to win a race that would earn me as much money as I've earned from my job this year
