|Pikes Peak - looked cooler from the plane|
Positions are locked over at La Luz, with the registration list now posted over at UltraSignUp.com. Yours truly landed a race bib, as did several other Santa Fe runners which is a fine thing. Almost felt like I was running alone out there last year, and I found my reppin' abilities to be severely limited by the sheer number of donuts and beer I was crushing back last summer. Among this year's SF crew I see Leigland, Corona, Dreier, Baker (now in Abq but a SFHS grad so I'm claiming him for SF), Conley, Gordon, and Temple. My man Steve got wait-listed as did Espo, which hurts, but maybe they slide in as the race approaches. Assuming we're all on the starting line in August this is quite the crew. There's also Halladay and Kneisler from the Hill who deserve mention.

The Big Guns up front include four-time champ Kris Houghton and two-time Big Tesuque champ Dustin Martin. Olympic Trials qualifier Jesse Armijo is currently wait-listed as is five-time champ Erica Baron on the women's side as is ultra-champ Katrin Silva.
Fired up about all of this. Lots to love about these recent events.
Reminder that Imogene registration is this Sunday, June 1st, 6am. Get some NM folks up there to battle the Flagstaff crew.
