Book Him Danno!

Since Lisa and I have challenged each other to read over a 100 books a year and then blog about them - Lisa has been better at this than me - we have decided to start a group book review blog. All books all the time.

So the first review is up, Jonathan Franzen's Freedom, so please come on over and visit, even comment. Remember we are just getting started but links and more book news will be coming soon.

Plus if you have read a great book lately and can follow the same basic format for a review that we do, please send it over and we will post it. If you can do that at a few times a month we will sign you up as a permablogger (full blogging privileges).

So come join us for all the booky goodness, and please add a a link to your sidebar.

I have found my race

June 24-26th, 2011
South Dakota

I have been looking for an ultramarathon for a few years now that would fulfill a goal I have had for a few years now. It had to be point to point, on a trail, woods and hills but without the altitude, within a day's drive, but not a total killer. For the longest time I was considering doing the Sawtooth 100 up in northern Minnesota, but the course is a relentless killer and is an extremely technical trail.

But now comes the Black Hills 100 and it is just perfect.

Who wants to join me for 100 miles of pure fun??
