I will be volunteering at the C&O Canal 100 April 27-28, and I'll be running the Bear Mountain 50-miler May 4. It feels weird to have signed up for a trail run with not just one but two corporate names in the title. Instead of being organized by a husband and wife team, or an ultra-runner who's a bartender at a ski resort, or a crazy junior high school basketball coach, my money's going to a publicly owned corporation. I've never run their race in the Headlands, but I've heard things both good (brings out strong competition) and bad (littering, a big zoo, not as pleasant a vibe as the usual trail race). I guess we'll see.
Also, registration for Steamtown marathon opens tomorrow. Any takers?
