A blog by a guy named Chris who writes about running. Usually trail running--often at the ultramarathon distance. See you on the trails.

Winter Solstice Run
In the Midwest it already seems that winter is here, but officially, it doesn't start until Saturday, December 21. What better way to celebrate, or defy, the beginning of winter than to run on your favorite local trail? For those in central Illinois, the north fork of Clinton Lake trail is prime real estate for the solstice festivities. A group of runners will be embarking at sunrise (7:14am) to conquer the 10-mile trail. At least a few will turn the shortest day of the year into a really long fat ass style ultra event by tackling 30 miles of hilly paradise. Join us at the north fork canoe access lot if you want. Hoping this will be my 90th ultra/marathon. What a great way to start winter and close out the year!
