The Western States lottery took place this morning and, alas, I was not randomly selected to fill one of the 213 available slots. Considering a field of 1,614 hopefuls, it was a long shot. While slightly disappointed, I am also relieved. My head really hasn't been in the ultra game since Heartland. Following a page from Clea's playbook, the new plan is to scale back and speed up. Less miles run faster.
2011 will be a good year.
