      I will not be coming to Ice Age.

       

      Holy shit.

       

      So this means you are pacing at Keys 100?  That sounds like a pretty sweet job.

        I know 4 people who applied for Badwater. At least 3 got in (I'll find out about the 4th this morning). That ratio was unexpected.  Anyway, lots of cool cascading effects on schedules.  Righteeo.

         

        Edited to add: no, I know 5 people who applied.  All 5 got in.  I thought Badwater was supposed to be badass hard to get into.  I know they raised the entry fee by like 200 bucks... maybe that cut down on the applicant pool or something.

         

        But this is a thread about Ice Age.

         

          Anyone have lodging ideas or previous experiences?  good/bad?

                I have been checking it out every day.  I am trying to get Zach to register, but he loves waiting until the last minute.

                 

                For being a Montrail Ultra Cup race with the top two spots going to WSER, there are no elite runners in yet.  Very weird.  I heard through the rumor mill that Dave Mackey was going to race it.  Everyone better get their ass in gear.  (Then again, the less of "them" that appear, the better I look...haha).

                    I guess you and Christine will have to represent out elite ladies

                      I just saw Christine is in.  Bad news:  There's another woman finishing in front of me.  Good news:  She is cool and fun to drink with after the race.

                       

                      And seriously, who the hell are you calling elite?  I'm not close.  My best shot is to keep my times steady over the years so I can be an elite grand-grand masters runner.

                        Hmmm

                         

                        What place did you finish for women in the last 2 National Championship races you ran ...

                         

                        This time when she will not let me pass her at mile 37 - I will carry a big paddle to smack her ass ...  Just kidding.  It will not likely be an issue this year.

                          You are right.  I lost the last champ (100k trail) by a miniscule four and a half hours.  If only I hadn't stopped for that extra cup of gatorade...

                           

                          I'd rather be a middle of the packer.  We're more fun.  You never see the elites telling volunteers dirty jokes at the aid stations and having a beer after the race.
