I don’t want to discount their reaction that in the big picture, it’s pretty good, but I

    I signed up for this race in the middle of last year. It is a lottery so you have to register early and hope you are chosen to compete.  Fortunately for me the 55K distance is not too hard to get into.  When I looked at my race season I didn’t really put all my …
