First I want to thank you all for your kind words on my last post. I certainly appreciate people’s support.
So today I received a letter from Jerry Dunn, the race director of the Lean Horse Hundred and Half-Hundred. Inside was a note from him letting me know that I had been randomly selected for a one-year subscription to Trail Runner magazine! How cool is that! I didn’t even know there was a pre-race prize drawing. The race doesn’t even take place until August 23rd and I’ve already given them my money so it’s not like they have to win me over to anything. What could this be, a race just doing things for the athletes who have registered with them because…why? Maybe because they feel a sense of kinship with their athletes, a kind of “These are our athletes for this year so let’s get this party started.”
I had a similar experience with the Oklahoma City Redman Iron-distance triathlon and the Silverman Iron-distance triathlon. These grass roots race organizations are just great!
Maybe you should consider joining me at one.
