Wednesday afternoon I gained entry into May's Massanutten Mountain 100 in Virginia. And this morning I paid the $160 entry fee making my 'entry' official. This is welcome news, especially now just before Christmas, since it is the one race, above all others, that I would like to run in 2011. I look forward to training runs with Keith Knipling, the Leesburg Mafia, VHTRC and WUS crew and- hopefully- showing up May 14th ready to rip. Above all, my goal is to not run the last 40 miles wearing a trash bag like I did in 2009.
