This race was awesome! It was well worth the 18 hour drive that had huge wind the hole way. This race was my first time keeping endure, and I didn't even know what to do. I had a fellow racer named Jim Koch give me a crash course on the ICO computer, and then I was on my own. I was able to perfectly zero out 4 out of 7 checks, and it should have been 5 if it weren't for a cranky checkpoint worker who laughed when I put my foot down at 59 seconds, and made me burn the check, when I really zeroed it out. I was unsure how I was doing in the results, but I ended up getting 1st!! I am very happy and excited about my result! Anyway, I had a ton of fun on some awesome singletrack through the trees with nice moist loamy dirt. It was about a 100 mile race, and I felt good and strong the whole time. Thanks to everybody who helped me out, you guys are the best. Beraaaaaapp!
