Cold Cleveland weekend

The view from Cliff Drive. Cleveland, Ohio. February 16, 2008.

Numerical symmetry at the Chili Bowl 5k: Ran 19:19 in 19F temps. The challenge was crossing the Detroit-Superior bridge twice: Once each in the first and last half-mile of the race. Performance rates 51 on VDOT scale, two notches below training level of last summer/fall.

Spent some time on the Ledges trail on a slushy, icy day.

View from the Ledges Overlook in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Peninsula, Ohio. (February 17, 2008.)

News of the weekend: Date was announced for the Green Jewel 100km. It's road/path ultra that follows the entire Emerald Necklace of the Cleveland Metroparks. The run starts 3 miles from my house at the mouth of the Rocky River and finishes 62 miles away at Squires Castle in North Chagrin Reservation. The May 3rd date fits well with my training plan for Laurel. I'm tempted!

Where can the information for the Green Jewel 100km be found? Is there a web-site?

I asked and it's not available yet. They're meeting soon to finalize the permits and details. I hear there's a limit of 50 runners.

Vertical Runner is sure to know when the entry is available.
