This November, there will be elections of officers in the Upper Midwest Trail Runners and there will be openings for new directors. The only requirement for the position is to be a member of UMTR (you can sign up today!) The board is looking for people who would be willing to make a two year commitment; the board meets monthly in the Twin Cities and applicants would be expected to attend most meetings.
I'm planning on stepping down as director of the Fab 5 Fifties race series, but continuing on the board as vice-president. If you have an interest in being the next director, please let me know.
This may be this blog's last post (until I race again or have some big new idea). So... as Douglas Adams said:
"So long, and thanks for all the fish."
Added 8/21: Just heard that local running legend Lloyd "Forever" Young has died at the age of 87. Obit.
Added 8/25: Unretired for all of five minutes. Thought about going for over-50 course records on trails and having to chase down John Maas, Steve Sjolund, Brent Smith and Joe Winch. Then I remembered... Kevin Setnes... I'm not running Ice Age in under 7 hours!
Aid Station: Eugene Curnow
