You would not believe how indiscriminating you become about where you lay your sleeping bag to rest when you are this exhausted. Plus, you start to realize the value of a good baby wipe bath (no showers, three runs, 36 hours, I'll let you figure it out). One of the great things about the race is the beautiful setting. We had absolutely breathtaking views of the blue ridge. All in all, it was a great experience, but one I don't think any of us are ready to repeat again.
|The night before the race - still feeling pretty good, pretty clean and excited.|
|Night before carbo loading dinner.|
|The team (minus Heidi who was currently running)|
|Couldn't beat the green trees, white clouds and blue skies.|
|Ready . . .|
|Let's go already!|
