It has been quite a while since I raced (12/31/07 ATY) so I'm pretty excited about getting back into action this coming weekend down in Los Alamos. I would be hard pressed to predict a time; for one thing it seems that the course changes each year but I always like to throw a time out there so how about 8:50. That would be a bit faster than I ran San Juan (9:08) a few years ago but my San Juan race was more of a training run effort. From what I've heard the two races are similar in difficulty.
I figure Kyle Skaggs will run about 8:20 and I'd be pretty happy to be within half an hour of him. Nate and Karl are the two other big dogs in the race so it should be a really fun weekend. Two other CRUDers are heading down; Rick H and Harry H so we'll be going for CRUD bragging rights. Rick won the race the first year it was held. My parents are camping and hiking in New Mexico right now and will be meeting me at the race.
