And, much of the travel budget went towards races: WS100 in particular wasn't cheap.
Next year, I'll stick with driveable races: Hardrock or Black Hills 100 being top of the list.
The other races (Steamboat, Leadville) weren't as bad with travel but still add up.
And, I made a conscious decision not to run Pikes this year, and not to run the NYC marathon, despite initial interest and the excitement of qualifying.
I don't want our only travel to be race-related.
Mock's blog (and GZ's -- ho-hum) remind me of the pleasures of getting far out of Dodge.
So I'm very excited we found some cheap tickets to Panama in January. Time to dust off the passports.
