Before Jesse broke his foot last Thursday, I was resigned to pulling out of the Way Too Cool 50K on March 7 in Cool, CA (near Sacramento). I’ve had some serious IT band pain since December’s North Face 50K, and although it’s much better, I thought it unwise to do the same type of race that landed me in the pain cave to begin with.

We'll be back on the trails soon.

We’ll be back on the trails soon.

Now that Jesse’s out of commission for at least a month or two, neither of us will be racing Way Too Cool. We’re both bummed but hope we can race this epic-sounding trail ultra in the years to come. For now, the important thing is that Jesse’s foot heals well. Apart from Way Too Cool, Jesse and I aren’t registered for any races until May, a long time between races for us (Kaiser Half in February until Mountains 2 Beach Full/Half Marathon and Vineman Monte Rio Triathlon in May), but good for the healing process.
