Thanks Harvey. I think I am going to give it a go. I will be camping out in Santos one weekend in August to go practice those Red trails and get over my fears. I just want to build up doing as many 6 hrs events to that I can eventually do a 100 mile off road event or a 12 hrs solo event.
P.S. Nice to see you on here. Thanks...
Thanks back! You guys were having too much fun in here for me to sit out.
6-hour races are a good progression to the longer stuff. I did the 12 Hours of Razorback in '04 and said "never again". After doing some 6-hour races, ORAMM a few times and a bunch of 100-milers last year, I've done 2 12-hour races this year and might be at Dauset in September.
There's so much to figure out in endurance races - pacing, nutrition, mind games - that baby steps are a good thing.
