JFK 50 Mile - I'm In!


There was no internet posting. No email. Just a self addressed envelop with a generic message inside. My "entry into the...JFK 50 Mile to be held on November 23, 2013 has been accepted." So there you have it! There is old school. And then there is Old School. The JFK 50 Mile is OLD SCHOOL. Not surprising given its status as the OLDEST ultra marathon in the United States. The first running? 1963, or the first year I saw daylight. A 50 year old race meets a 50 year old runner. I'm pretty excited to be a part of it and looking forward to establishing a 50 mile PR at the ripe old age of 50!
