      I think everyone is just trying to get Deb into the race by scaring off some
      of the runners ;-) BTW: I got into the race on Sunday, even though it
      doesn't show up yet on the list :-)

      This is about the same place I saw the mountain lion in the road in 2001 as
      I was coming in to the finish at night!

      See you all soon!
