Still a two time loser...

Just re-confirmed my status as a two-time loser for Western States 100 miler 2009. I'll be very lucky to get in next year due to this year's cancellation and the automatic re-entry of this year's start list. Well, if I don't get in, there's always 2010 or 2011.

Won't you get in automatically in 2010 if you don't get in in '09?

As you may know, all the 2008 entrants for WS got auto entry for 2009. That's 391. Now some have opted out,say 20. That's 371 spots taken outta 400. 29 spots left. Then you have the automatics. maybe 10 spots left. Then the TTLs: 254 of us vs 10 spots. So 244 for next year, but then the same happens again. I could see the RD imposing a limit of half of the TTL get in 2010 and the other half in 2011. Luck of the draw, right?

Too complicated. Why not just go win Miwok or American River and get in that way?
