Otto Maddox

Well, I'm going to break a rule tomorrow and run sick.  It is more in the category of get one more in before the bad part gets here.  Is it just me or do I always seem to be sick over the weekend?  Probably best, I hate laying around on work days and end up working anyway.

Not a bad year last year...2,272.7 miles.  That's about 43 a week.  I'll take it.  Recently I have been thinking of cutting back my yearly ultra total.  Thinking Ice Age and maybe a special event now and then.  I really don't enjoy running long much anymore.  Two hours is about all I want to tinker around with.  Wait, I only run 2-4 races a year of any length so why run?  Because I love it!

I still want to do a mountainous 100 venue.  Just get out there and amble along.  Breath in the air.  Suffer a little bit.  Beat the cut-offs.  Enjoy life.  No hurry, but hopefully in the next couple years.  Would like to go with some buddies, pals, hombres...legends. 

Doing the maintenenance miles.  Staying fit.  More of an update on this over the weekend.
