Ultra Update: Some Bad News

Injury is the the bane of the ultrarunner, and I have two. I regret that these will prevent me from starting at BoB 2013. Ugh. In the last couple of weeks even short runs have left me limping with two different joint problems. The basic rule I follow is Penn and Teller's "no permanent damage." I'm fairly sure that attempting 100 miles on these injuries runs a very high risk of permanent damage, and I'd prefer to get them healed and keep running in the future.

It's disappointing, but following this rule has gotten me through 33 ultras.  I plan on finishing many more.
