It qualifies you to claim you are a stud. In the days of olde, it would be a qualifier for the ISDE, now it's only a name. Have you ever watched WRC? Same thing but on two wheels. Haul ass in the specials, ride briskly in the transfer sections.

Qualifier

The Idaho City 100 is not a qualifier for the ISDE this year because of the need to name the teams early. That won't make the race any easier or less competitve. Enduro, HH, GP, GNCC, WORCS... they are all races and you will race your way to the finish. I am no racer, but, I have yet to see the start of any of these that didn't result in flat out balls to the walls racing. You will have fun. (you don't have to race bar to bar in the transfer sections however. )

Have fun, keep us informed.

Doug

I just found these from the 10k I ran two weeks ago..... my time was about 56 minutes which for me was not bad at all.





there were at least a dozen photographers out there.... it was nuts. This was at the very end where I was trying to catch the guy with the two kids in a jogging stroller. I never caught him.... but I managed to finish in the top 15%.... which isnt bad.



Got a half marathon in a few weeks - it will be my first. I now see the hideous irony of me wearing the Catalina GP shirt which kept me from running the other half marathon just a few weeks after the Catalina GP....

Im not particualrly crazy about running either but it builds endurance, keeps my weight down and gives me another challange that I have never risen to; Marathon.
At my size and weight, its a little tricky. WAYYYY easier for a 5'4 120 dood to run 26 miles.... a little tougher for a 6'3 220 guy. BUT.... if I was 210.....



Raced the "Enduro" today. It was.... hmmm .... interesting. There were some problems in the race that prompted a restart but not after an hour or so of racing.
I would have to say the riders were to blame as much as the club that put it on but more on that later. Ill start a vid tonight.... stay tuned.

I've run prolly a dozen Marathons. Its not that hard to do IF you find a good training program and stick to it. You think that running a Marathon is unique until you run the LA marathon with 40,000 other people........seriously.

Yeah quyen did a half last year and it was at least 40K people....I couldnt BELIEVE how many folks turned out for that thing! Or the fact that the winner did it in about 55 mins.
