What a SWEET gift for 2011!!!

Found the following in my inbox today ...

We are happy to announce that NJ Trail Series will be offering a 72 Hour option at 3 Days at the Fair in 2011. This is in addition to the current offering of 48 and 24 hour races. The link to the website is www.njtrailseries.com/fair. The start date for the 72 Hour is Thursday May 12, 2011. The race location is Augusta, NJ at the NJ State Fairgrounds.

The race is held on a flat certified loop of .85 miles (approx 1.4km). There is a full kitchen on the loop to provide hot and cold food 24 hours a day. Bathrooms and showers are also right on the loop to allow the runners their best chance to achieve their maximum result. Plenty of space to set up tents or other items alongside the course as well.

Thank you,
Jennifer and Rick McNulty


(No WONDER I found the extra mo' to kick out a 2-hour runwalk before work on this Monday when I typically do 25 minutes. Somehow, I must have KNOWN that Rick and Jennifer were gonna give this idea the official nod!)

OK, so now it's official. There will be LOTS of extra fun to be had along the way to the NJ SEVENTY-TWO HOUR. I'm gonna do a 72-hour run. A 72. Me.

Oh. my. word. times. infinity. With a big, fat smile mixed in there.

3 Days - Hard to imagine, but I am sure you will survive this ordeal and be able to tell us all about it. I can hardly wait for your pain to begin just so I can read all about it. Congratulations, I think!

Sweet! 72 hours, I am impressed at anyone who could even attempt to run this long, but I guess you have children so you should be well-equipped.
