Next Event – SOB Trail Run – Ashland, Oregon July 27, 2013

Here is my Race Report SOB Trail Run July 27, 2013

I’m signed up to run the 15K at SOB (Siskiyou Outback) Trail Run July 27, 2013. This is a terrific event and I have done it several times in the past – I’m not sure but I think I have maybe four T-shirts from the event. This will be my first time running it while in persistent atrial fibrillation. So far I have completed one 15K, one marathon, and one 50K while in (known) persistent atrial fibrillation – but of course I suspect that there have been other marathons when I was in a fib but didn’t know it.

SOB Trail Run

The races begin at the parking lot of the Mount Ashland Ski Lodge and go up from there. In addition to the 15K there are also 50K and 50 mile events. There’s no way I’m in 50K shape right now.

The course for the 15K includes a portion of the Pacific Crest Trail.

Running on the PCT

This will be my first time running the SOB in atrial fibrillation – but I’m not too worried about the elevation – not after trekking in the Andes last week at 4600 meters (15,000 feet).

This event has always been very well managed, inexpensive, with great music and great food and plenty of raffle prizes. Wait for me at the finish line – I hope to see you there.
