I have been training pretty hard, in fact I have pretty much matched or topped my previous PRs in all my training. I ran the 6+ mile Elfin' Forest in 55:26, which was a best be about a minute. I will probably taper from here on in.
The course looks quite a bit different this time around, if anything it looks a bit easier and definitely a bit shorter. About 10.4 miles. There are quite a few new obstacles this year. I am not even sure what many of them are, but I expect they are just terrain obstacles, like "hey run up this hill, no really it's an obstacle".
