No More Posts 'til After Race Day

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. 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 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 bottle some beer to take with me on the trip. I'll also be smug with the fact that I have three 10-gallon batches of beer fermenting away and waiting for me when I come home.

100 miles is a hellofalongway!

Yeah, it's a firkinlongway. I'm going to take along my homegrown hopped Imperial Rye IPA. Hops are good for recovery.
