Oh, hey stranger. Haven’t seen you in a while. I haven’t been hanging out here in blogland. No real adventures so far this winter. But there are a few things afoot that are worth mentioning, so I decided to check back in.
2011 White Mountains 100
First of all, I recently noticed that I never posted my race report from last year’s White Mountains 100 race. I remember jotting down lots of race details shortly after the race. But the story was kind of dry and boring. I wanted to work on it some more, so I set it aside…and completely forgot about it. But I recently rediscovered it, and I guess it is worth posting even in its current state. So for what it is worth… here it is, eleven months late.
2012 White Mountains 100
Yeah, so in that aforementioned race report, you might notice that I said that I would definitely be back to do the WM100 again, but definitely not this year. And I was definitely quite definite of that. But yet somehow I find my name on this list. Whoops. Long story short, my brother-in-law (I guess technically he’s not my brother-in-law, he is my wife’s sister’s husband, but that takes too much effort to explain.) expressed some interest in the race. I encouraged him to do it, and in a moment of weakness I even said I’d do it again if he did it. Of course, I was thinking that with a lottery to enter the WM100 this year, there was no way we’d both get in. So it would be a pretty easy commitment to back out of.
His name is Lou. He is #49 on that roster list. Somehow we both got in. My plans to sit around and eat bon bons all winter went up in smoke.
