San Diego 100

Flew to San Diego.
Got picked up at the airport by my friend Bob
Chilled at pizza port-A girl told me I was sexy.
Hung out in La Jolla cove(awesome)
Met Bill Ramsey and drove to the Run
Saturday: Ran and sang songs to myself.
Sunday: walked, saw a rattlesnake, heard coyotes howling and suffered in the heat. Threw up everything I ate and shot lentil beans out my nose. When I wasn't throwing up I enjoyed a good dry heave. Got sunburned, blisters and dehydrated, finished 100 miles and got a belt buckle.
Hung out in Coronado and ate a chimichanga while enjoying a margarita(delicious)
Flew home.

Recovering for "Hardrock 100"

Runnable course, great volunteers, nice race t-shirt and well organized.
Second hundred of the year!!!

life, wisdom and smelly toenails

How about a real blog for once?

See title and relate as you will.

Ran and finished MMT 100. Glad I finished, happy for a three hour PR on the course, am capable of a faster time. I had a lot of issues that I worked through and am very proud of my finish.

Wisdom toothless a few days after the run and have been loopy ever since. 4 wisdom teethless later and the oxycodones are almost gone which means I should be back to normal very shortly. Not so much. Describe normal and how I can relate. I just bought three tickets to the New kids on the block concert in Cleveland. I think if my wits and wisdom teeth were still about me, I would have never been hoodwinked. Damn the lil sisters and their obsession with boy bands. Damn be to reunion tours.

On a more refreshing note, I just ripped off my big toenail on my left foot and smelled it. Guess what??? just like a belly button. Who knew?

Awesome note as I ate lunch at subway today.

The subway that I go to near work is owned by Indians (from India). I enjoy, laugh and almost choke to death as I listen to customers ordering his/her sub. They think that if they yell louder the poor, stupid immigrant will understand AMERICAN CHEESE and LETTUCE. This one lady yelled OLIVES twice and the poor little immigrant india terrorist politely said I don't think any more OLIVES will fit on your sub, I've put them on twice.

no wonder the world thinks we are stupid AMERICANS.

Leave Thursday for San Diego(Whales vagina) Running the San Diego 100. fingers crossed and wish me luck. Can't spell fun without FU.

Don't yawn, it hurts!

MMT 100 is around the corner. I've had major pain in my jaw the last week so I went to the dentist and he said I need my wisdom teeth out. Bad timing, Yes. Don't really feel that removing four of my teeth a week before a run that I have been looking forward to for a few months is in my best interest so I get to suck it up and play tough. Can you keep your wisdom teeth to put under your pillow? If so, what do you get for them? Damn the wisdom, to hell with logic. Monkey wrench, not by Edward Abbey.

I like soup bring it on.

End of March and the beginning of April put me in Frozen Head TN. Didn't get to play on the Barkley course this year but did get to enjoy most of the candyass trails around the park. Great single track, rolling and runnable. Passed up a trip out west snowboarding. POOP. Ran a local trail race called the Ault park switch back and won a free pair of shoes. Yeah for free shoes. Ran the John Bryan 50k yesterday as a last long training run for MMT 100 next month. Felt good all the way and feel really good today. Debated on running the flying pig marathon but have no desire to beat myself into submission on pavement. Run along and enjoy life!!!!

Thank goodness the holiday season is over. Work gets crazy around the holidays and now I can get back to running routines, less hours at work and a great 2008. Happy New year everyone!!!!
Been getting some junk miles around the roads with some up tempo stuff mixed in but hit the trails today.
Got waitlisted for The Barkley Marathons and just mailed my Hardrock 100 application(Waitlisted that last two years) so maybe just maybe I get lucky in 2008. Time will tell.
Heading to Virginia next weekend for MLK training week. Back to Back to Back long days in the MMT 100 mountains. Always a good time with great people.

Bring on the mountains, these roads suck.
