      Now that you won a race, you are an elite.  An since you are an elite, you can drop out of any race you aren't winning!

       

       

        Ha!

         

         

         

        And I've never been relevant in a race.  Well, relevant to myself, but that's something else all together.  Do you win anything for being relevant to yourself??? ConfusedWink

        Imminent Catastrophe

          Fame is so fleeting. Today's Mountain Mist 50k put me back where I belong, in the back of the pack. Sigh.

          "The most common question from potential entrants is 'I do not know if I can do this' to which I usually answer, 'that's the whole point'.--Paul Charteris, Tarawera Ultramarathon RD.

          You'll ruin your knees!

            Fame is so fleeting. Today's Mountain Mist 50k put me back where I belong, in the back of the pack. Sigh.

             So that's when you start sharing little tidbits of advice to the other back of the packers so it looks like you are a really cool elite just hanging out and sharing your wealth of front of the pack knowledge... Wink

              Fame is so fleeting. Today's Mountain Mist 50k put me back where I belong, in the back of the pack. Sigh.

               

              Thank goodness.  We didn't need you to get a big head.  Next thing you know, you have a blog and are bitching about not being allowed to bypass the Hardrock lottery and the lack of prize money in ultrarunning.
