I have until Tues. to make a commitment to run in Birmingham on 12/6... and holy shit, it is expensive. $45 for unattached athletes. Except for the Nationals, and SE Masters, I've never paid this much to enter a meet. Pretty ridiculous. But, it's probably the best 200m track in the SE. It's a Friday evening meet and I can drive there in 2 1/2 hrs from Sewanee. Maybe it's crazy to drive 5 hrs when I could run at MTSU the next day if coach Hayes lets me in. If he doesn't, then I'm S.O.L. for the whole month. Now I'm thinking I should save the $ and run at MTSU (and get smoked). It would save me a hundred bucks and gas.
Today went better than last time.

Watching my diet, had a modest no carb Thanksgiving, just turkey breast and salad. First time I've eaten turkey in more than 20 yrs.
