This is the year I get back to racing - trail run races with a possible assault on the 2009 Western States 100. I am following the path of one of my idols - Paul Huddle.
Check out this blast from the past that Andrew Ernst created for me:

For the past 8 days I have been commuting (1hr 45min each way) from Squamish to Boundary Bay Airport to spend time in a Simulator learning how to fly IFR (Instrument Flight Rules). At first I hated it and wondered why a wannabe float guy like myself was learning IFR. Now, I get it! I almost addicted to it. I enjoy the SIM! What a difference a few hours can make.
I have two more sessions in the SIM then it is off to Tucson for my yearly journey to AZ. I have been going to Tucson since 1993 as either an athlete or coach.
This year we have 2 camps.
It should be fun and to see guys like Bruce (see picture) get so pumped makes it worth being away from the SIM.
More from Tucson....
