December is here

Well....kinda bummed I didn't get into Western States for 2011. I only had about a 14% chance of entry so I was prepared for the disappointment. I still have one chance; if I miraculously finish first or second in Jan's Bandera 100k I get an entry. Lots of top dogs coming down for that race. Just learned that it, and March's Nueces 50mi were awarded USATF National Championship status! Pretty cool to have those in my 'backyard'. I'm planning on taking it 'easy' heading into Bandera 100k; I won't be slouching but intend on having very fresh legs for that one.
Scored 2 new pairs of shoes from Hill Country Running yesterday. 70% off sale was too good to pass on even though I don't really need any more at the moment. Montrail Hardrock and Pearl Izumi road shoes. Yes, road...I'm going to be a 3:15pacer for the Austin Marathon and will be laying down a few more road miles in the coming months to prep for that. Should be fun. My first marathon!
