2. Have said race on Boston Marathon weekend so that 1/2 the field is away
3. Only invite friends that train for 100 mile runs, but make sure the race is no more than 5 miles.
4. Be sure to encourage entrants to run the course just before the race to "get to know the course".
5. Run hard and hope #1-4 did their job!
amendment #1. Make sure Gnarls "would have done the race as a cool down to my scheduled 30 miler and still beaten Jeff" Barclay is working that day
