I arrived in Reno, NV at 6:45 pm on Saturday. I flew out at 5pm on Sunday. Now that's a short trip. However, it was a very fun trip. Not only did I race (!), I spent time with teammates I had not seen in months, I spent time with family friends I had not seen in years, and I spent time with kitty cats-4 of them. They were nice enough to let us stay at their house for the race. They did, however, keep a close eye on us to make sure we were staying in line.
Then the suffering started and continued for another 45 min. I have to go back to this race next year with proper fitness so I can really race and enjoy the course, instead of surviving (barely) and suffering like a dog.
