Bummer. I didn't get in. I. Did. Not. Get. In. Western States, that is. I was sooooo hoping that I would see my name on the lottery results. On my way home from a run this afternoon, I got a voice mail from my friend Tom telling me the GREAT news that he was in and I WAS NOT. No. Nada. Not this time. Did I say bummer?
Immediately, I went to plan B. Not that I had a plan B. Everything was going to revolve around WS. Soooo, I decided to look at other races that I hadn't run before. I decided to enter Coyote Two Moon 100k. It is a difficult run with a 26 hour time limit in the Los Padres National Forest in Ojai, California. I had to beg and cry to get in. Finally, after a big to do, I am in. GULP!! It is on March 21-23. I'm excited!
Congrats to all of you lucky stiffs who got into WS. I am jealous and resentful, but I will survive. Everyone, get out there and enjoy your weekend. It is cold and frosty here, but no rain yet. Keep healthy and injury free as we move into the winter. Find your limits and move beyond them.
