A trip to the San Juan Islands sounds like a tropical getaway. Instead the Orcas Island Fat Ass 50K is an endurance challenge with 5200 feet of elevation gain. To compound the challenge the weather forecast is calling for rain on Saturday. At least the temperatures will be nice for keeping us cool.
The race has 61 entries for the 25K and 40 entries for the 50 K. Here's a picture of the course map:
This will be a great training run and I'm looking forward to a fun weekend with Michelle, Steve, Melissa, and Bob (Steve's Dad).I'll be trying some new food, Pork & Beans during this run. Steve may not want to run with me.
Thanks for reading, I'll write a report when we return.
