Race lotteries are a pain in my butt!
Okay, so I didn't get in. Get into where, you ask? UTMB, I say!!! Damn lotteries! I am bummed about that, I really am. I could envision myself climbing and descending the Alps and conquering them. I was ready to take those mountains on! I am disappointed. First it was WS, then Miwok, now UTMB. What next?
Last Saturday, with Mont Blanc on my mind, I ran a good effort up to the top of Mt. Tam and back again for a total of 28 miles. A group of good friends all training for different races, WS, Vermont, Bear, Bighorn. The good news of the day was when Suz announced that she had made the National Team for the 24 hour race which will be held in France. She qualified at the SF 24 hour in October when she ran 134.7 miles for a course record! She will do awesome!
I am looking at plan B: Bighorn 100. I am not a strong 100 miler but I am just itching to tackle the Bighorn. Let's see if I can get into that one!!
