I was kvetching about there being no real goals between just finishing and winning at the Superior 100. I should've looked at the website; since the last time I tried to run there, the race has added a master's category, so the goal is simple: win some hardware. That's a challenging goal, especially since Chris Hanson turns 40 this year and he's done the course in 27 hours (Dallas Sigurdur and Matt Patten also turn 40) and, if Andy Holak finally breaks through his mental wall at that race, he could win it outright. Brent Bjerkness did it under 26 hours, as did Scott Meyers.
Suddenly, yesterday's first run in shorts and t-shirt of the year (6 miles in 50 minutes and a balmy 50 degrees) seems much slower than it did just a day ago!
