Surf the Murph 50 Mile – Next up for Where’s Chris Scotch October 29, 2010Posted by whereschrisscotch in Races/Events Schedule.
As with all the events I have participated in this year, I am running with intention and for a cause I strongly believe in – St. Jude Children’s Hospital. This will be my 15thth event in 2010 and 7th Ultra Marathon since July 3.

Halloween weekend and a race close to home, Surf the Murph will give me a chance to race 50 miles, in a costume, AND still be home for dinner the same day!
Having put in a long run last weekend on the Wild Duluth course (had to see what the rest of that course looked liked!) with Helen, Andy, Kim and the pups (Rudy and Cooper) as well as a few shorter runs since the Wild Duluth race, I am feeling ready for another race.
The weather has been windy and chilly this week (Cooper’s water dish had a layer of ice on it this morning) but the forecast for tomorrow is looking warmer – 50 degrees and sunny. Assuming I get through the 6am start without freezing to death (my costume is….minimal. Like shorts in the 1970’s minimal!) it should be a great day. Pictures of those awful shorts will be coming in the recap – stay tuned!!
