That anoying little girl in Poltergeist II says it, I'm baaack! But I mean it!
I'm getting back with the blog in a smaller weigh (I said that on purpose!) When I left you guys I was 195 pounds of unfinished business. My last post said I was going to get serious. How serious?
I'm now 170 pounds (that's a lot less!).
I went to Kansas and completed Heartland. It went great. A new PR (first race at age 50) 19:56.
6th place overall. 1st 50+.
I went back to Ancient Oaks in December. Thanks to excellent (and relentless) pacing by A2, I Lowered my time for that course from 22:47 to 22:45. Finished 4th overall.
Starting age 50 with 2 top tens..... not bad!
Well, the Long Haul 100 in Wesley Chapel is less then three weeks away, I'll do that. Don't expect a top 10 here, there are some real speedsters signed up here! I hope to do well time wize, I can control that to a degree, but I can't control who shows up, I'll say this though, they are going to have to run to beat me. If my ailing foot holds up, I could go sub 21. We'll see.
After that it's back to Black Hills, I'd like to see the other 78 miles of that course and exercise some poltergeists!
