Alright gents I need your help.
I've been feeling extra motivated lately and have been inspired by some friends who just attempted to complete the Bigfoot 200. I have come to the realization that I push myself in the gym and am pretty active but haven't done anything in a while to really test myself.
I have the big 3-0 coming up next year in February and want to do something to commemorate that milestone, a Rite of Passage of sorts. So needless to say it needs to hurt, a lot.
Playing around with some ideas in my head, a half-marathon isn't enough although this is the farthest I've ever run on a dare with about 2 weeks of training. I hate running on roads so most typical half and full marathons aren't a good fit anyways.
There is an 18-mile trail run a week before my birthday that is local which I was thinking might be a good fit; but then I stumbled upon a 50k trail run on February 10, a little over 25 weeks from today. With some simple math 50k = ~30 miles, coincidence? Happenstance? Serendipity? Fate? A calling?
Am I crazy? Is this feasible? Thoughts?
