|Organizing food in my kitchen on Thursday night.|
|Manna from heaven indeed.|
|The aftermath. I spent ONE FULL HOUR picking burrs out of my clothes when I got back to St. Louis.|
Coasteering clothes on the left, race clothes in the middle, socks on the right.
|Erl picking up maps at the pre-race meeting.|
"OK guys, we're gonna go over this huge spur, hit the creek at the bottom, turn left, and then go down 100m and the CP will be right there at the creek junction"
"OK guys, we've got 2k left to go on this bike and the checkpoint will be on the left at the intersection"Those aren't his exact words, but we had several similar exchanges throughout the race that really helped me stay focused on getting each leg done.
