I probably won't post for the next 7 or 8 days.
I'm really busy at work and getting ready for my trip to do my next 100-miler. My normal wifely crew won't be able to take vacation and support me, this year. Lou Joline (73) will be my traveling companion. We've traveled together many times before to 50 and 100-mile races, most notably when I paced and crewed for him at the Leadville Trail 100 in 2004. He'll be doing the 50-miler this weekend, and then take it easy waiting for me to finish the 100.
I've also been busy entering registration data, and doing last-minute stuff for my own race, which will take place 1-week after the 100. Today, it passed 140 entrants; almost 100 more than the last (inaugural) year. Why do I have to make January & February so stressful each year???
I'll take along some homebrew for after the race. It's always fun to have a beer before breakfast (and dawn), while sitting in the finish area and cheering on my fellow hundred-milers.
