WHERE ARE WE GOING?

Flatlanders 12 Hour Run
NO REALLY, WHY?
I took my last swing at qualifying for Boston, I sorta made it, and now I'm on to other things. Some folks I work with -- even fellow runners -- have asked me why I would want to run for 12 hours. That they would ask why is a large part of why.
WHO ELSE IS GOING?
Only about another 40 folks, mostly members of the St. Louis Ultrarunners Group (SLUGs).
WHAT'S THE FORECAST?
Looks like upper 60s at the start warming to upper 80s in the afternoon. Warm, yes, but I've been logging miles at least in the upper 80s for many weeks. If I encounter any trouble, it shouldn't be because of the weather.
HOW DO WE WIN?
I don't have a true upper-limit goal for this event. There are some numbers I have in mind but I need to consider I've never gone past 31 miles so this will be a record by (hopefully) quite a long way. I can say that I'd be very upset if I wasn't safely past 50. I could hit that with barely above a walk, so all I really need to do is drop everything to prevent chafing, and keep moving forward.
