Over the past month, with ticky tack injury after ticky tack injury, I was really debating if I would be able to run the Runners World Classic “Hat Trick.” I have trained through these issues though and heading into the days before the race, I am ready to rock and roll! (I hope)

So what is the Hat Trick? In most sports, a hat trick is three of something; goals on hockey, soccer, lacrosse etc are the most common instances one hears. In cricket it is “the taking of three wickets by the same bowler with successive balls.” For this race, the Hat trick is a 5k and 10k on Saturday morning and a half marathon on Sunday morning! Basically 22 miles of running over 24 hours – somewhat similar to my Reach the Beach race that I take part in each fall (Go Guzman Guys!).
Now, I have never run this race and there is no heads up so to speak on what the course looks like from what I can find online. Yes, there is a course map for each but those cool race videos that I have used before for certain races do not exist for this one. I am running with some other BIBRAVE Pro’s so that should be fun but at the same time, it looks like high temps will be in store for me come Saturday morning so all I can say is BRING IT ON!
