Hope you have a great time! Now, are you still kicking around coming to Pony Wars? Looks like the SST will be debuting! I can't wait!

I may have to take a pass on that this year... It's 2100 miles to Portland, the 300 or so into Canada, and it would be 2400 plus from there to SGMP... and then a 1000 miles home.. over a two and a half week period of time...

That may be too much with my knee, but... you never know... I would absolutely love to meet those of you I haven't met in person yet, and to see Bruce again and finally get to see the SSt...

True, true. Don't want you to do anything to put your healin' at risk. Some procedures here have got me limiting some things lately. We'll meet up, we may be in Texas next summer.....and then there's C5 Fest as well.

I'm on the mend, but not released for work yet, and Brandi still isn't ready for the track... Still have a plan and a goal, then it'll be on to thee 1/4 runs... mid to late sprring before any serious runs on a short track...

Thanks for checking, and I'll be in Houston all weekend, just not running yet...
