MMT Out. Western States In.
I dropped from the Massanutten 100 entrants list this morning. I have waited nearly four months to drop, two years to attempt again, but I am doing so in good conscience. I am not injured, I still enjoy running, and I want to keep it that way. I very much would like to run MMT, but it will need to wait at least another year. My eyes can now be fully set on kicking some rear at Squaw Valley. While I longed to avenge my MMT DNF from '09, I'd rather not sacrifice a chance to show what I can do at the big dance. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity, and I don't want to squander the chance at giving it my best. I've never run two 100's six weeks apart, and I figured this wasn't the time to test it out. I want that sub 24 hour cougar buckle! Best of luck to my VHTRC bud Doug Sullivan, who it seems, was happily able to claim my MMT slot.
