Nope, my first post-injury race will be next weekend at Murrieta.

It's a bummer that they don't have the downtown IV course for this Saturday. I always really enjoyed the atmosphere for that race.

Dominguez Hills , something in a 4, strong personality, full bodied but refreshing.

Yeah... but the roads are all torn up for construction so it would be more like a cross race

Oh, I didn't realize that! I was assuming that it was a permit or financial decision.

They couldn't do it in IV and they were considering other locations (I don't know how seriously) but decided to do it on the Mothballs course because it is well established.

I don't think there are any cross races that involve scaling 8 foot tall chain link fences.

Oh yeah, I saw your other thread... didn't realize that was the race. Anyway, I'll be in the straight 4 and the 30+ 3/4.

I'm holding on too tight.
I've lost the edge. I'm sorry, sir.

I'll be in the 5's at Island View. Look for a really tall guy in a UCSD kit. Say hello.

Lessee... I'm just getting over a severely sprained ankle, a cracked or bruised rib (both of which still hurt but are sort-of manageable), a throat infection, and now a head cold (dripping sinus and dry, hoarsey cough).

I've got a 35+/1--4 race I could do... or a Pro/1--3. No cat 3.

I'm thinking, "No."

Too bad, 'cause the old Island View course was my first race back in 2007 here in California (I managed to just finish with the pack in the 35+ race). I like Mothballs' course too. I like those narrow, short, fast courses.

I too am racing Dominguez Hills in the straight 4's and the 30+3/4.

I'll try to say hi (before you hand my shredded legs back to me sauteed with Tomato Garlic Butter sauce)

BTW:why did this one have a 'name' Arctic, and the previous ones didn't? I remember last year they all had some funky name.

The Dominquez Hills course was interesting run backwards. I can't decide which way I prefer it, I feel like today's race was less sketchy than past races going clockwise.
