Just a quick post to say I survived the Death Race with a time of 19:31:46. In one word "Brutal". Managed to place 4th in my age group and 23rd overall in the solo division. I got lost in the dark on the last section of the course adding 4-5K extra credit to the course.
Ran with Terry Sentinella from Anacortes for the first three legs and then he took off and placed 11th overall and 3rd in his age group with a 17:04:11.
Michelle was the best "Crew Chief" on the course and served a dual roll helping both Terry and myself.
Had the pleasure of meeting Sarah and her brother Aaron from Calgary. Sarah ran leg 5 in the relay, see her blog for details.
I had additional support from the "Trail Angel" Leslie who kept popping up along various sections of the course. She also came up with some killer mashed potato fuel for me at the fourth and last major aid station. She smoked the 5th leg on a relay team.
I will post pictures and provide a detailed race report when we return home from vacation. Thanks for reading!
I'm back! I'm back!
