Work is putting together a team for the Reach the Beach Relay in mid-September. It's a 200-mile relay race where from Cannon Mountain round the back of the white mountains, alongside Lake Winnepesaukee, ending at Hampton Beach (same parking lot as the Seacoast Century). This'd involve running three legs totaling around 17 miles (one of them likely in the dead of night), with several hundred feet of climbing guaranteed. I'd have to work up to at least an 8-minute half-marathon pace by mid-September. Doable, but not a distance I've ever tried before. Barring injury, it'd also put me in a good position to do the half with [livejournal.com profile] dcltdw in early October.

Looking at the course, I'm pretty excited. Scenic sections abound, and the stretch through the White Mountains is actually fairly easy hill-wise (it's the lake district where they really pile on the hills). The course goes right past the foot of the driveway for ET's alum retreat, so I suspect a training run is in my future over memorial day weekend.
