Sorry I haven't been present on the blog lately. It's been so hot here I just can't get excited about running. I've been really working on my roping and effort to qualify for the Las Vegas Finals in December. In the last 3 weeks I finally accomplished this goal. These finals pay about 200K to win in each of the two categories I qualified in. So you can probably imagine why my focus has been on that. I will get started running again to run a fall Half and maybe a winter full and then Boston in the spring!
I can see you are still running strong!!!
