I've also packed enough caffeine to wire the crew of a battleship.
Although my main goal is to have fun, I'll admit that secretly I'm hoping to turn in a relatively good time, as well. My training has gone much better this year than last, my thyroid has behaved itself all summer, and I've had a couple of really good trail skates recently, where I've gone faster than I thought I could. Maybe, just maybe, this will translate into a good race.
So bring on 4 am... good race or just fun race, I'm ready!
