I've been anxiously waiting for the check to be cashed for the Cheguamegon Fat Tire Festival. I had opted for the 40 mile race and was really planning on training to be in the top 250-300 (1700 starters). However, Saturday's mail had my rejection notice. They get somewhere near 2500 entries and hold a lottery for the 1700 starting positions.
First I was pissed, then just bummed. Now I need to find a good event for the last half of the year.
