I have been sick for the last 8 days, so no running (well, with the exception of the 15K I raced in on Saturday). I think it was a bad move, but live and learn. Turns out I have an ear infection and a sinus infection. Hope to be well enough by Saturday to try out two new local, small trail races--both are 5Ks, but it'll give us a chance to learn the trails of two parks nearby that we have never been to.
QOTD: No, never forgot to register for a race. The mister and I are OCD, so we have a spreadsheet with registration dates, price upticks, and distances. I've had dreams where friends have made me late for a race and/or prevented me from running a race, but that's about it.
BT survivor since 2003. Trail runner since 2009.
I think brain surgery stimulated my running nerve and made me into a trail runner. I'm grateful for both.

Beautiful 5.5 mile run for me this afternoon. I snuck out of work a little early to enjoy the day and was rewarded. Early in the run I saw 2 deer, then a bald eagle for the first time in my life (in the wild) which was awesome. Late in the run I caught up to a group of 2 guys and a girl who were running and pretty heavily geared up. Turns out they were doing a 25 mi. run on the Long Path. All in all, some really nice distractions to my usual run.
QOTD: If I consider doing a race, I mark my calendar for the day I want to register and the day of the race.

A man may never run the same trail twice for it is not the same trail and he is not the same man
