Shoe-horned my way into the sold out Deadman Peaks Trail 50 Miler on Oct 23 down in New Mexico. I had been looking at this event for a while but it sold out fast. Should be fun. I feel pretty solid physically and am looking forward to running there. It's an out and back course on the Continental Divide Trail. There's only about 6,500 ft climb but I'm thinking they're the jagged, grunt, short, constant climbs and the trail is difficult terrain. I've learned from North Fork not to underestimate a course just before running it. So, it'll be a tight two weeks of racing with that and the Antelope Island 100k. Oh, and a lot of driving too!
