Its been a while

So, its been a while since I've had a go at this whole blog thing, if you can say I ever really made a go at it at all. You'll notice a whopping two whole posts below this one, the previous post from almost two and a half years ago. I'd almost completely forgotten I even created this page.

I have plenty of stories I'll be writing up over the next few months including finishing the recap of my first ultra and what actually lead me down to Mexico. A lot has happened since that first adventure into the canyons.

I attempted my first 100 miler and failed, the Javelina Jundred in Arizona put on by the awesome Coury family and Aravaipa Running.

Attempted another 100 miler only a couple months after that, and failed again.

Ran zero ultra distance races in 2011, but hosted my first ultra distance race, the Fort Clinch Endurance Runs, which will be making a return in 2013 as the Fort Clinch 100.

Participated in my first triathlon, an XTERRA off-road sprint.

Returned to Mexico for another run in the Copper Canyon Ultra Marathon.

Something I never thought I would do: helped with the search and rescue effort for Micah True/Caballo Blanco when he went missing in the Gila Wilderness of New Mexico.

Attempted my first 100k at the Born to Run Ultra in California, and failed.

Crewed at Badwater.

Ran The North Face Endurance Challenge 50 miler in Georgia, and failed.

Just formed an organization to coordinate ultra distance events: Llama Running Company, LLC.

So there it is. Lots of good stuff coming soon. Truth is I can be kinda lazy when it comes to writing. And I have ADD. And I'm dealing with an injury and havent run in weeks and my mind is going 1000 different directions. So I say soon, but it may not be THAT soon. Seriously, took me like 10 minutes just to type this paragraph. We'll see...
