In the meantime, the same race organizers from the Tesla Hertz Ultramarathon that took place back in October announced that registration for their Fat Ass was officially open; I guess that Facebook "I'll be there" wasn't enough for them! For those of you who don't know, a "fat ass" running event means that there are "no fees, no awards, no aids, no wimps." In other words, running the event is free and the event is entirely self-supported which means no water or aid/snack stations.
This particular run is called the Happily Running Fat Ass and will be run on the same 10 mile loop as Tesla..I think. Needless to say, I registered on Monday for this January 11th event and am planning to run the full 50 miles (runners can run however many miles they want). I honestly can't express how excited I am for winter break right now and not only because of the, well, break part. For anybody interested in a freezing cold, early morning, but otherwise life-memorable experience, I encourage you to check out their Facebook page by clicking on the link below. As for my training, I will be including as much of it as I can in my posts until the race including my fuel intake for those curious what a vegan diet looks like during 50-60+ mile weeks.
