No H.U.R.T. For Me

Run 2 miles
Bike 11 miles
Lift 16 lifts
-3 sets of 12 reps

I've never been to Hawaii. I was thinking about this the other day and decided that I should go this winter. And then I decided that if I were going to go to Hawaii in the winter I may as well run the H.U.R.T. 100 while I was there. It'd be perfect timing. The race is in late January. Far enough away from now to be plenty ready for a 100 at that time but also still 5 weeks before the Iditarod Trail Invitational so I'd have plenty of recovery time between the two. Awhile back I had looked at the H.U.R.T. application process and it mentioned that the race was expected to fill up by the end of the year so be sure to get the application in by December. Well it turns out that the race filled up in just a couple weeks this year and the application process is closed and there's a long waiting list, which I don't even think you can get on anymore. Bummer. Guess I'll have to think about that one in 2009.
