My first ultramarathon retirement announcement yet… surely more to come:)

If I remind you of MJ or any other such athlete who went in and out of retirement like clothes in a laundry mat, there may be an inkling of prescience to that. Nevertheless, as I examined the terrain and tough footing atop of Bishop’s Peak this am, I reflected that I might be better off “barefoot in the Graaaaasss”with Ed Sheeran than scrambling among treacherous boulders at top speed. Will my retirement stick? Not on your life!
