#100happydays Day 90 Ultrarunning Field Guide

#100happydays Day 90   Ultrarunning Field Guide

The other day I came across a great article on my Facebook page from Outside Magazine about ultrarunning and I fired the link off to Glenis in an email with instructions to read the article.

The article was about Hal Koerner and Hal’s Top 10 Must Do’s on Race Day. It included obvious must do’s like wear a watch and have fun along with ones you might not give much thought to like be ready to be resilient when things go wrong and do stay aware (after all most ultras are not in urban areas). The article also touched on what not to do like don’t fret over natural phenomena and don’t let aid stations dictate your personal fueling. That last one is so important not only for ultrarunners but for any racer. Race directors placing aid stations don’t know where or when you will need fluids only you do.

Not only did Glenis read the article, she bought each of us Hal Koerner’s book! Yeah sister! Hal Koerner’s Field guide to Ultra Running. It covers training for ultramarathons from 50K to 100 miles.

Field Guide to Ultra Running

Field Guide to Ultra Running by Hal Koerner

A few years ago we ran a 50 miler; it was an awesome event in our lives but talk about winging it. We only did a little research and figured out our own training schedule then drew on our experiences from all the marathons we had run. Having a field guide would have been great.

Well we aren’t planning on a 50 miler this year, just a little 50k, but this book will be a great reference. We should have an easier time finishing. Check out Hal Koerner’s blog.
