Just a short note early on XMAS morning. Dang it if I don't have a nasty cold which has slowed down running the last few days. Yea..some will say it's ok to run and often I do but this time I want to take the time off which I have..But I will head to Meadow Vista and Gordy Ansliegh's kinda traditional 10k run. For those new to Western States...Gordy started the whole running 100 mile thing for us in Northern CA..the first Western Stater...anyway he has a small race on this morning I will go and waddle through. John Nichols said he will be there..It will be nice to get outside no matter what.
An update note went out about a benefit run for Dan Moore's-supporter of Western States--You may have scene him staging the Bath Road Aid Station...running in Western States or stopped in his store Auburn Running Company. January 3rd is a benefit run at the Placer High Track...funds will go support additional costs while Dan is in hospital..a very worthy cause.

Wow...on paper 2009 Western States 100 looks like a who's who of top ultra runners. Latest has Scott Jurek returning. The young guns will be there. It will be fun to see how all this turns out. The masters race will be very competitive as well...
Have fun today...Tony
