Thursday Anticipation

There is really only one thing we want to talk about this week. Namely this:

There is lots of talk about the race from the Dark Side and beyond. That is good. It will be better when that talk is taking place around the fire in the middle of the night while the race is going on. Good times, for sure.

Please note that the pre-registration window will slam shut in exactly one week from today. After that, you can still race. But it will cost you $75 instead of $60. No, it is not too early to sign up. Yes, I'm looking at you.

Most importantly, don't be like the Fraggle and neglect to play close attention to the dates. They're on the middle of the poster in big red letters and numbers. Just under the even bigger 24 with the photo of the Secretary riding through it. It would be a tragedy to find yourself double-booked next weekend. Especially if it means you have to miss the race for a family gathering in Altona. Even Altona is coming to the race this year. Or at least there's a team called ABES and BABES on the start list. That should be interesting.

That is why you should come to the Spring Ride, Dallas.

Speaking of which, did you see the article about Ingolf in today's WFP? Looks like more clear cutting ahead.

I'm running at Ingolf tommorow for 4 plus hours so I''ll post some pics.
I just thought that since everyone was people were there we could sneak away to get a lap in On a new trail (for some).
