Calico was my first ultra in a while. I had not raced ultras since Sept. of last year, when I did the Angeles Crest 100 Mile Endurance Run. For Calico, I didn't really paid much attention to the preparations. I kinda just, "showed up and did it". It wasn't my "A" race, it was almost just a training run. During the run, I realized how if I had paid more attention to certain things I would of had a much better race. It was a good reminder of how important race preparation was. But, on the other hand, I much enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. I had so much fun at Calico; and it was challenging enough to have pushed me beyond my ordinary training. Now, I'm all juiced up for racing again.

Hey, a lot of people have been asking me about how to prepare for an ultra. So, here it goes.

Let's cut to the chase, I'm not impressed. I thought that the Ironman broadcasts on TV were much better and more inspirational.

Okay, I admit it! I'm afraid of cold. What can I say, I'm just a warm climate person. So, when we decided to do Calico, I was mentally prepared for "frigid" conditions. I heard that last year, they had 11 degrees temperature and 20 miles per hour winds at the starting line. So, I wore two pairs of tights, gloves, with a poly long sleeve undershirt and our green ATB shirt on top. And, in my drop bag, I stashed thicker gloves, a beanie hat, arm warmers, a wind jacket, and more shirts. I thought, that ought to do it!

Another thing that I'm doing this off-season is working on my base.

Sounds too good to be true? You bet! However, that is what has been happening to me. How? You ask.
