    Congrats to A1!  Very nice work out there.  It was great running with you for a little while.

     

    Yea buddy - It was great to have someone to run with. Pass some time and get some miles out of the way. I wish you had been feeling healthier*.

     

    *is that even a word, it doesnt look right ?

          I ran from a brewery to another brewery and it was 90, right in Island Boy's wheelhouse.  Hell yes.

            Hey Trent:


            Check out the Ozark 100.  Very close to you.  Late (Nov 5). Cheap ($150).  Doesn't sell out. 

             

            Scenic, point-to-point.  All singletrack.  I think I'm going to do it too...

             

              - Chris

             

            I am planning on it, too.

                oops

                Overnight the paper app to get there tomorrow morning.

                 

                Oh wait, does that mean you DID get in?

                Failure is a good place to start.

                  He got in.

                   


                  You'll ruin your knees!

                      Heh. I have time to reconsider - and I am.

                      Was there the second it opened, but got shut-out by an error message on the waiver page. In three different browsers.

                          Trying to decide whether it's worth the $18-$33-$69 to get it there - for a chance at 50 confirmed or 50 wait-list slots.

                          Perhaps there's another interesting race going on around that time... will have to take a look.

                           

                          (Yeah, OK - still kinda ticked that my typically speedy (surfing) self couldn't pull this one off again. Roll eyes)

                            Autocomplete helped me.  Got it done in ~1 minute, heart pounding.  This is clearly not how registration should be, and it plagued my lil race this year.

                             

                            Some registration websites detect multiple simultaneous attempts across browsers and give errors Sad

                             

                            My backup was to be the Baton Rouge 126.2.

                              Glad you got in, Trent.

                              Or it could have been Rocky. Then you could have had Lynn and I pointing out your stupidity over and over again.

                              When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
