This weekend: Mt. Werner Classic 50k training race in Steamboat Springs

July 30, 2012

Despite racking up big weekly mileage lately, it has been quite some time since my last legitimately long run.  As I get closer to the CR100 I’m looking to shift my miles to longer single runs to better simulate the many, many consecutive hours on my feet at the race.

Mt. Werner Classic 50K Trail Run

This weekend I’m starting the training shift, running a 50k at the Mt. Werner Classic in Steamboat Springs.  There is a cool video fly over of the course so I have some idea of what to expect, which includes over 5,000′ of elevation gain on a route that spends a lot of time over 10,000′.  My plan is to go easy, using my CR100 race gear and nutrition plan and push just a little on the flats and smoother downhills.  We’ll see how that goes.


Alison and Ceci had a triumphant Colorado race debut at the Diva Dash over the weekend.  They powered through the heat and through the sand and over and around the many obstacles, covering the course in under an hour with smiles at the finish.  Some pics from the day…
