Pre-race routine:

Crashed out on Mike's couch the night before and slept pretty well even though they tried to pull a fast one on me by trying to pass off a pillowcase filled with folded sheets as a real pillow. Got up at 6 and loaded up the truck and headed to the race. Got some nutrition bars and drinks and arrived at the race site and set up transition.
Event warmup:

With the race being 8-12 hours, didn't really need to warm up much. The race started with a short trail and sand run to seperate the pack a little and that served as a warmup.

Warm down:

lots of pasta salad. Just some noodles and dressing with chunks of veggies, ham and cheese....but it tasted better than anything in the world after the 10 hours in the wilderness.

Event comments:

This race is so different than anything else that I do over the year that it is hard to evaluate. This year it seemed like they made it more accessable for the non hard core folks, while still keeping it pretty darn challenging. Overall, I am glad that Mike dragged me into it again.
