Chippewa Moraine was supposed to be a fast training run as I prepare for a 100 miler, not a race I cared about, but I just had my feelings hurt by someone who'll be there and I plan on taking it out on the course. I have 16 days to prepare, so don't expect much in posts until then. I was told that I'm a clown rather than a competitor, that I had an okay finish for an old guy at Afton, an embarassing middle-of-the-pack finish at Voyageur and that I'm pretending that I know about ultrarunning when I don't have the chops.
Insane running manifesto
When you're thinking about work, I'm thinking about the race. When you're thinking about your family, I'm thinking about the race. When you're thinking about the race, you better be planning how you're going to crawl away with your tail between your legs.
When you're lifting weights, I'm on the trail. When you're on the treadmill, I'm on the trail. When you're on a trail, I'm on a more badass trail. When you're on the same trail I am, I was there before you and I'll be there after you leave and, if you should try to pass me, I will come down on you like the hammer of God.
Chippewa race prediction
(Assuming Caleb is injured and not running) : Me, then Ramacier, then Howard, then Gardner, then Schuder and Ziegenfuss.
By the way, none of those are who pissed me off.
