It's time to start tacking on roman numerals to this annual event. Not quite the number of runners as usual with only 3 actually finishing the full El Chubbo Grande 50K, but below zero temps didn't stop the Chubster train from rolling on. Of course, now a week later it's back to t-shirt running weather. Thanks to Nick and family for hosting the party once again and huge props to everyone that tackled any of the frozen Chubby trails last Saturday. I believe I got 1st place on the Kid's Fun Run course.

It didn't take long to warm up to the news that I would be Hardrocking for a third straight year. I will be looking for redemption on the "easy" clock-wise route that did me in two years ago. I've already got the race plan in place and if things go right I should kiss the rock in 33:44. That probably won't even put me in the top 50 next year against this stacked field.
