Yesterday driving to work I was behind a car whose license plate read "DNF 550." I took it personally. This weekend is Hell's Hills, which would have been my 5th 50 miler, the last in the Texas Style 50 Mile Grand Slam. I thought the Slam was a reasonable goal, and maybe it was. But I DNF'd the 5 50s. I took that license plate as a slap in the face, so I rammed him from behind. Just kidding.
I would love to have headed to Smithville for the race, but I admit I am looking forward to a relaxing Saturday. I don't have any races coming up on the calendar. I need to get back on a running schedulel I have been working 12-14 hour days for a few weeks, and haven't been running at all. After tax day I'll start fresh and build my mileage back up.
I saw this shirt on a web site. It's me: Cross Timbers, DFL; Grasslands, DNF; Hell's HIlls, DNS.
