Not Superstitious, But!

Tom Sobel told me last year that if I can't finish the CP50 under 10 hours, I shouldn't think about Leadville.
So last year I bonked the CP50 in 10:48, and then proceeded to DNF the LT100.
So this year I did the CP50 in 9:30 and my bib# was..... 100.
Oh, how I wish I was superstitious! How apocryphal.

John Marini is the runner who died. He's from Highlands Ranch, but the name doesn't ring a bell.
I want to find out more.

I was looking at the Jemez Mtn course maps. Ouch. OMG! This is a 50! This terrain looks absolutely incredible. And the course goes out of its way to climb up every bump and down into every canyon. Great training for the SJS50.
