Lottery season is off to a great start! I gained entry into the Gorge Waterfalls 50k in April. That knocks American River 50 mile off the docket. Jed Smith 50k and Way Too Cool 50k (lotto willing) will constitute my winter warm up. Now I have to pick some other Ultra Grand Prix races to make up for skipping AR50. If I fail to get into my third consecutive States, I'll likely be wrapping up the season with Dick Collins and a quad dipsea.
