Nationals Invite...

This arrived on Friday:

Dear XTERRA Competitor:

Congratulations! It’s my pleasure to invite you to compete in the 8th annual XTERRA USA National Championship race in Lake Tahoe on October 5, 2008.
As a leading regional points scorer, you have earned a slot at this prestigious event, where the title of National Champion in your age group will be up for grabs. The field is limited to those racers, like yourself, who have qualified in the eight XTERRA regions throughout the country.

This was my goal coming into this season, I wanted to qualify for Nationals. It feels great to realize this goal, given all the hard work that has gone into this season's training which started last December in the pool. It felt great to accomplish this goal last year, but is sweeter this year as my racing has really progressed.

I won't make the trip to Lake Tahoe this year, as life has gotten in the way. We'll be moving this September/October to a new home and with all that that entails, I'll have to take a pass this year.

next year, yeah.
