On to Bandera Boys!

Back to Bandera…I love that place…quintessential TEXAS….beautiful, rugged, brutal…

That is the answer to what I have been asked over and over again the last couple of weeks.

The next race…only the 50K (31 miles) run through the trails of Bandera…the other day on a group trail run, Marlee and I joked that if you don’t finish the race bleeding, you probably didn’t run it…the Sotol Cactus is a serrated edge cactus that precarious guards the rocky trail. There are climbs…and descents…technical terrain….and some smooth parts…and the Texas Sky goes on forever!

Davy Crockett was correct…”I must say as to what I have seen of Texas, it is the garden spot of the world. The best land & best prospects for health I ever saw is here, and I do believe it is a fortune to any man to come here. There is a world of country to settle.”

Now you know….Press ON!

Some day I've got to get down there to do a "winter" ultra - that terrain just looks awesome!

I know what you mean about Bandera. It was my very first trail run and it gets to your soul. I haven't gone your distance, but know you, of all people, will have a blast no matter what you're doing, Dave. :)

I SO get the "only a 50k" comment :)

I left a comment the other day when I first read this post. Where did it go?? :(

I recall so many of your running during the midnight hours. I do believe that this race is where you went to the dark side completley.
