        I decided against it, I'm going to go to NJ 100 instead.  Good luck!

            hmmm.  Was thinking Zane Grey 50 on the 16th. 

             

            This looks interesting.  100% Maybe.

              No maybe about it.  The race filled in some 5-6 minutes.  You are in, or you are not.  Silliness.

                Woops - I thought this was a solicitation.  Looked at the website but didn't read.

                 

                Defintely not me, then.

                xor


                  Daddy, don't sit on Zane Grey either.  When it opens it'll fill fast too.  It's on my maybe list.

                   

                  Umstead never was.  Which is nice for me.

                   

                  Good luck to Trent and A1.  I want to know if A1 will lap Trent.

                    Daddy, don't sit on Zane Grey either.  When it opens it'll fill fast too. 

                     

                    Same for Old Pueblo 50m. Closes in 4 hours.

                      I want to know if A1 will lap Trent.

                       

                      Interesting question.  Once upon a time, A1 and I ran an ultra together.  If that ultra were 2 miles longer, I would possibly have passed him.  But that was long ago and A1 is now in crazy shape and I am, well, not.

                        Good luck to Trent and A1.  I want to know if A1 will lap Trent.

                         

                        The race is long enough that the oppopsite could happen depending on who is having a good day or bad day.  I will not be racing 26.2 miles in the heat with every thing I have the saturday before Umstead though.

                         

                        I'll buy the beer either way.

                          I just noticed that ZG is a point-to-point with a "we don't give you a ride" policy.  As I don't feel like doing an accidental hundred (much less an intentional one) and don't much like feel like bribing a crew, ZG is off my list.  Now to look at OP50.

                           

                          Back to Umstead!

                            Why not?  Just wonderin.

                            xor


                              Nothing against the race, which I've heard is wonderful... and I've run the area a couple times.  Nice.

                               

                              I just can't count to 100 and have no desire to count that high.

                                At Umstead, you only have to count to 8.
