I don't do team. I don't do track.

had to break one of my 'rules' this weekend.
don't usually let work get in the way of running but with the boss away only have one completely free weekend in june: the trailwalker/sri chinmoy track weekend.

long story short team mellum (TW brisbane) didn't eventuate: overseas, sick or just not running i was the only one left. even our crewie left us ;)
i am a terrible team organiser - put some time into finding replacements but in the end (and i know this sounds rude) i just want to turn up to a 100km race with a couple of dropbags and a bit of thought the night before.
preparing for TW has become like landing on the frigging moon: compulsory briefing nights, 2xcrewies required, huge weekly emails, race packs and rule books that have me losing concentration page 2 and without meaning to sound like a complete prick i have never been big on the 'donation events'.
events this size need all this stuff it is an extremely well run event - but it's just not me.
so basically i am selfish and lazy.
that shouldn't be news to anyone ;)

thought about slotting into another team and did have a couple of interested teams who were a member short but saw today one started with only 3 ... what the? as whippet says 'so they chose to DNF/finish incomplete rather than run with you' :)
sitting at home all day looking at photos and trail updates having a really bad case of trail envy.
tho having said this 'mr perspective' reminded me today he can't even walk up a hill without getting breathless and WAS due to fly out to hardrock today... chosen race this weekend is sri chinmoy 6 hour tomorrow.
have grandious delusions of doing 60km+ so will see how i go.
running well at the moment but 'the unspeakable injury' has been giving me some curry over the last few weeks.
have the white skins, garmin and ipod at the ready.
this will be embarrasing!
