Mount Washington Lottery

Today, they announced the field for the 2009 Mt. Washington Road Race. I am very pleased to see fellow snowshoers and bloggers Scotty Graham (acidotic), Bob Jackman (TNT), Scott Mason (TNT), Max Thomas (WMM), Paul Kirsch (WMM), former UML/MVS teammate Brad Klinedinst (NB Boston), and fellow GSR members Scott Masse and Mountain Goat Sarah Prescott in the announced field of about 1000 brave souls who will go to battle on 'the hill' on June 20th. It's exciting to also see my friend and elite runner (now running for GTD) Jon Healey throwing his name in there.  I really think Jon will run very well at Washington and hopefully if he decides to have further fun in the summer, Cranmore and Loon... He is coming off a very productive fall of a 1:09 half and 2:29 marathon in Philadelphia. Knowing his competative nature and strength he should be mixing it up, up front for sure.

CMS looks to be once again sending a strong contingent to Pinkham Notch this year with 20 runners all toeing the line at the start of the Mt. Washington Auto Road.

I'm disappointed my sister didn't get in...and she is half disappointed and half relieved.  Better luck next year (I hope she enters)...
