Sorry: Online registration is not yet open for this event. Online registration will be available on Friday, February 1, 2008 12:59 AM Pacific Time.

All I have to say is Active.com sucks. I never depend on them to get it right. Either they open up registration early or late, not really on time much. I can just picture a woman sitting behind an old wooden desk watching a fuzzy old tv with rabbit ears and tinfoil. She might also be talking on the phone and all the sudden she interrupts her converstaion, "hold on, Madge, I gotta do something" and hits a button, looks at the time, shrugs and goes back to her conversation. Meanwhile, a bunch of running geeks all across the country are sitting at their computers playing endless games of solitaire while hitting refresh on their active.com website waiting to be let in. We look at the time and mentally push the alarm back as late as we can.

Surely there is some computer person that loves running that wants to work their magic on the internet for a better system. One that doesn't crash and finds the race you are looking for (no luck searching for bighorn). One that welcomes Mozilla. There is money to be made here, how much have you given? I am not feeling the love back, that's for sure.

NOTE: I wrote the above at 1:30 in the morning (obviously a little frustrated) waiting for registration to open. What I didn't do was calculate the time zones correctly. I stupidly assumed that registration would open at 12 midnite MST (where the race is) but it said it would open at 12:59am PST which, for all you math wizards out there, is 1:59am MST.
