Ya might want to consider Superior carefully. That is a really tough 100. Accounts from those who have run both would indicate it might actually be harder than Leadville (though, it has more generous cut-offs, so perseverance counts for more and fitness counts for less). As for Wild Duluth, let me know if you want company; I'd happily do that next fall. Maybe we could get a joint crew together.

@Rudy why not? I keep injuring myself trying to go fast on the shorter distances. And, I love the longer runs, both training and the races.

@Eric - would be happy for the company.

I have heard that about Superior. Don't know that I really want to do that one as a first 100, but it's a good thought exercise. The more generous cutoffs were the main reason for consideration. On the flipside, being out for 38 hours would would be a drag (I think final cut is 38).
