A US jaunt
I'm about to tour the US for a couple of weeks on business, on a rather punishing schedule of customer visits. Next weekend I had the choice of either being in the New York area (after last meeting on Friday) or the Tampa, Florida area (before first meeting on Monday). I scoured the UltraRunning calendar to see how I might keep myself occupied and on the boil for the following weekend's Round Rotherham, and I found the Can Lake 50. That settled it - New York (or Canandaigua, to be more precise) it would be for the weekend. Uncharacteristically I have plumped for the shorter of the two distances, only for practical and logistical reasons. 50k should still keep me out of mischief. This will be my first US race since Western States 2009. I'm quite looking forward to it.
