Phew

I'm really glad the Fools Gold race is over. It is WAAAAAYY more stressful to organize and run an event like this than it is to race it. And way less fun, too :) I was actually jealous of all the pain and suffering the racers were going through...the cramping, the tears, the vomiting, and the total and utter exhaustion. Sweet stuff.

I am still in a daze. The last week has been full of craziness...including bear sightings, bee stings, and not much sleep.

Thanks to so many people that helped make this happen....among them...the racers, the volunteers, and the sponsors..especially Vassago Cycles, 55nine Performance, Sweetwater Beer, Dedicated Athlete, Terrapin Beer, Northstar Bicycles, BURN Energy Drink, Twin Six, and Mtbcast.com.
