      > Tried AC last September...pretty humbling experience, but also

      > I was pretty burned out after the training and the run, so took most

      > I'm getting a late start in training. My plan is something like this:

      > for a living), so my mileage during the wek is pretty modest. Right

      > repeats in March), one night 7-10 miles up tempo, and one easy night,
      > 6-10 miles. Right now, I'm spending Saturdays doing the 20-25 milers,
      > then in March, throw in a couple 30-35 milers, a 50 and a few 30's in
      > April, 100K and a few more 30's in May (including Memorial weekend),
      > then we'll se how I feel in June.
      > I live on the coast by Santa Cruz, CA, so heat training is hard to
      > come by, but I'll head inland on the weekends and seek what heat I
      > can find.
      > Looking forward to finally tackling States, as I've paced here twice
      > and worked No Hands Bridge twice...now it's my turn!
