First leg done

> Some of the people at the finish line noticed that I wasn’t really sweating. No, it wasn’t that I didn’t put effort into it. It was just that I was totally dehydrated. You can hear it in my voice. I don’t know why I drove to the next spot. I should have rested a little more. Adrenaline does funny…

It begins

> The heat turned out to be the biggest surprise for the runners. It wasn’t so bad at this point, early in the race, but Saturday at the C&O Canal would turn out to be brutal.

Figures

> It figures that my first transition spot is at a Lowes.

Update Before The Race

>Adam Palmer has started his leg. Shawn and I are not due to start until this afternoon. In fact, I’m at a work meeting.

Not Shady At All

My future brother-in-law, Jared, and I decided that it would be really neat if we had two XBOX 360 systems on two televisions in the living room at Apartment G. That way, we could both play online with his friends. I told him I had $200 to spare. It was money that I had saved to buy a video game…

Done!

Actually, I finished a while ago. My phone ran out of juice. I’ll post the last few pics and a video of me coming into Camden Yards later. Now, I’m taking a nap.
