My 2009 'cross season ended abruptly due to a dislocated patella from Barnyard Cross.

The dislocated knee cap was a result of "dropping it like it's hot" whilst dancing after Barnyard Cross. It would serve me well to remember I am no longer a kid — when I dance, there will be consequences.
In any case, I've been doing my best to get healthy over these long winter months. I haven't been able to log as many base miles would have liked, but I did manage to secure two things that will motivate me to get in race shape.
The first is a transfer entry to Ouachita. This year's registration filled up in the blink of an eye and I missed it.
