Please think about who might be a good match for me for the Aug 27 - 28 High Sierra Rogaine
. RJ is not available for this one.
I'd like for this to be my target race for the year, and I anticipate getting into 100k running shape for it. (Not that that's necessarily the distance I expect to travel, but I'll be fit enough to. I will do a rugged 50-miler about 5 weeks before the event.)
It would be great if the person is around my navigation and fitness level - not too much better/faster than me, and not much worse/slower than me. It's pretty hard to quantify those things since courses vary so much. Hm.
I would like to be competitive, though I also would like to have a really, really good time. I do want to see how far I can go, but I'm also not against mid-event magic naps. (For this one, I might lean towards not napping, but I'm not opposed to it if brain and body really need it. I've learned the power of the self-defined "magic nap.")
Must have a good attitude.
To give someone an idea of my endurance and backcountry experience, here's my rough resume: been orienteering for about 4 years, 1x24hour navigation race, 2x100mile runs, 2xlong trail thru-hikes (AT, PCT), many unsupported self-designed multi-day backcountry running / fastpacking adventures, about 50 marathon-distance and longer official running events.
