MMT Lottery

Well, this morning I logged onto the VHTRC website and entered my name into the lottery for next year's Massanutten Mountain Trails 100. Ever since doing the entire Laurel Highlands Trail last November and then again in June, the thought of completing a 100 miler has floated around in my head. However, most people would probably agree that MMT isn't the best 100 miler to attempt for your first try. And you know what.. they're probably right! (check out the elevation profile) But if everything was easy, would we get much satisfaction out of it? So, here goes nothing.... Next Tuesday when the numbers are drawn I'll find out if I've been selected to participate. Then comes the hard part... mailing in the check to become official!

Who ever said ultra-runners do things that make sense?! MMT for your first? Heck...I say go for it. For me, I've heard it's extremely rocky which brings back memories of beat up toes from Masochist...maybe another year for me. Good luck!
