Two new events brought to my attention by the eloquent Charlie Farrow.

Tuscobia Ultra & the North Shore Winter Ultra

It seems that the Tuscobia is in it's first year, while the NSWU is in the second. These are great early winter primers for Arrowhead, or some spring gravel suffering.

It seems that Charlie from his post of these racers is still upset at his boy Tim Ek who along with Pramann and I left Farrow in a ditch somewhere in central Iowa. Little did we know that he would literally crawl out of the grave to finish the race and eclipse the effort that Ek, Pramann, and I put in.

I suspect that Farrow will be on the bus that attempts a sub-24 hour finish at this spring's running on the Trans Iowa.
