Ok, this post is strictly for me. I am inspired, intimidated and in awe of all who attempted Superior last weekend, be it the marathon, 50 or the 100. I dabbled with thoughts of doing the 50 this year and for a variety of reasons just did not go for it. The 50 is on my calendar for next year. It just sounds like too much fun not to try.
So I will start my planning now to get to the 50, trained and healthy, so why is this post for me, well, real simple I am pasting in links to all of the blogs I read for inspiration to train for the next 12 months. When the darkness comes, the cold descends, the trails turn icy than snowy, I will pull out this post, click on these links, soak in your craziness and then get my rear out the door.
My thanks to all of those who shared their journey both the final result and all of your other posts that documented your path to the starting line. I have picked up many things that I will need to work through over the next 12 months.

So the plan is the Superior 50 in 2009 and who knows maybe the Superior 100 in 2010, that kind of looks like the makings of a great goal with a catchy intro - 50 in 9, 100 in 10..................
