Getting very close now to Ultrabalaton, a 212km fun run around Lake Balaton in southern Hungary. We're running it as a four person relay team, with me likely taking an 80-85km night shift. Training has been going well, with weekends dedicated almost exclusively to relentless forward motion...sometimes long slow runs and sometimes long fast walks. Last weekend Deanna and I did about nine hours in our trusty sneakers, and look to hit ten hours on the paths this weekend. A few more weeks like that, then the taper as we take our long-anticipated ten day tour of Turkey with some friends from work, before arriving in Budapest on June 16th.
