Western States Bound


So I thought I had spent all my luck when I survived my brain tumor….  And then I got picked in the WESTERN STATES 100 lottery this past weekend.    So, it is all set, I have been invited to the Big Dance.   My name was drawn along with some other 300 qualified candidates to run this epic event.   I am excited beyond words…   I didn’t think I was going to be picked by the lottery Gods, and somehow it happened..  woohoo!!   
So this next year I have four main events..
  1. 8X dipsea trail run (unsupported) (I attempted once, it didn’t go well, read about it here)
  2. Rim to Rim to Rim (unsupported)
  3. Western States 100 (first time and looking forward to it)
  4. Ironman Arizona (Did this event in 2009, I am looking forward to do it again)

These are my main events; there will be many others, but they will be training runs that will help me to prepare for these four major races.   I am excited about being able to have another great year in the trails.  My main goal is to keep healthy and most importantly to be able to tiptoe the starting line for these four awesome events.
