Flight of Fire Half Marathon?

I'm in a post-marathon funk. There was so much excitement leading up to Pasadena that now, afterwards, everything just seems sort of blah.

I think I need another rush of adrenaline to get my spark back. And since I'll be in Vegas soon for my Marine Corps Marathon, I'm thinking about running the Flight of Fire Half Marathon.

It looks brutal. The first six miles appear to be all uphill. It's all trail running. And the best (worst?) part? It's June in Las Vegas, so the temperatures will start in the mid 60's and get up to nearly 100 degrees.

Still, it's the first running of this event. It's limited to 200 runners. And of course, there's a suh-weet finisher's medal at the end.

What to do, what to do?
