Kinda scary...

Okay, here goes. Bien said I would never do it. Lucia encouraged me to do it. So I've done it. Yes, I have entered Blogworld.

Obviously the big talk in ultrablogworld this weekend was the WS lottery. I beat the 16% odds. I got in. Yay. Now I'm going to train my arse off for this one to, as Scott Wolfe says, "validate my selection in this year's lottery".

Although not quite yet. First I have this little fun run this weekend, ala Horton-style. Then I'll have to take a little time off to get fat! Of course, January brings FATSO (FatAss Trail Series of Oregon). A little mud at Hagg Lake in February (I won the Men in Skirts competition last Feb thanks to my Kathy Harshburger custom, so I get free entry, and I'll be going for my 5-year buckle!). February will also be when I start ramping it up again. March will hopefully find me at WTC. In April, I'm excited to watch the fast girls in Boston, then enjoy racing through the tunnel of screams at Wellesley College the next day with 25,000 friends. May and the first part of June will be focus time. Then the big dance on June 28.

To all of you who will be dancing with me on June 28 - rah, rah, rah for getting past the lottery! For those who didn't get in, I'm sorry. Obviously something is going to have to change for next year.

Holy Sh#@!!!
Never thought I'd see the day...

Just kidding, now I can stay connected through blogland.

Congrats on WS! I'm going to get my arse qualified and in the lottery for 2009..

You, Ashley and I should meet at a race in 2008 like old times :)

To all 2 of my fans...thank you. And as you can both see from the left sidebar, I'm a fan of both of you, too!

T - you can come to boot camp next summer! Although I promise it will be tougher next year so all campers WIN their 100 - none of this 2nd place crap.

Looking forward to seeing the skirt at Hagg and Boston :-)

Wow! And you're even putting hyperlinks in (am I dating myself by calling them hyperlinks?). I'm glad I'm a fellow geeky runner. And don't shed no tears for me, daddy-o, re Western States. There's other fish to fry and I'm planning on frying them! Yee haw! :) ;) :o) >:) :O Welcome to the if-you-scratch-my-back-i'll-scratch-yours world of blogging! (that was meant in a kind, gentle, humorous tone, btw). Good job at your races and I look forward to checkin' in on you and Sascha.

Darin, don't get too excited about the skirt making an appearance in Boston. I don't think those Red Sox fans would like it so much. The Wellesley girls, though...

Kendra, I'll be anxisouly awaiting to see which fish you decide fry for your first. Uh, what's a hyperlink? Oh, is it that cool little line under words and when you click on it you go somewhere else in cyberworld? I taught myself how to do that! And back scratches are always welcome.
