It would be a lie to say that I don’t know why I keep signing up for events that can only be described as masochistic.

And it’s because for reasons that I can’t explain, I let my friend, the one that’s actually good at these, talk me into it. In this case, I was still riding the [relative] high of a 4th place finish at the Turkey Burner when he struck. Although, I do have to admit that the no-outside-help aspect of this race is appealing. Not that this will make it suck less, just level the field a little between me and those who can corral a SAG.
