sounds like a good course.
looks to be a bit cooler in Columbia tomorrow, but humid and maybe wet.

...worked an 8-hour day and did 4 hours of thesis work...

Ha ha! No time to carbo-load, commute, say hi to wife and daughter, or pee? Just sleep? The life of a SLUG, in the finest sense!

Good luck tomorrow!

I did say hi to Kate and Yaya. I'm not a big believer in carbo-loading anyway. We'll see how it goes. I put screws in the shoes tonight. A muddy course is probably to my advantage.

Yes, I wish I was the type of person who was really good at 10 second races on warm, sunny days. But, I'm not. Five hours in the rain is much more my conditions. Sigh...

Nicely done, mud and all.

10 second race on a warm sunny day has no chance of ever qualifying as epic. :)

Yeah, you have to run 9.58 for that.

I was just looking at this weekend's races, saw this one up in Duluth. You might want to check it out for next year. Leadville terrain in the midwest? At least the chance that it would be humid, wet and muddy would be a bit less, tho the longer drive might be a deal-killer.
