I was pleased with the effort considering I woke up at 5 and couldnít keep anything down. Didnít have enough breakfast so I had to eat a lot on the course. Took a shot of fireball from someone at mile 40 and that kept me going.

Boswell won, averaged something like 20, which is insane. I think I could have averaged maybe 15 if I had felt better in the morning and ate more- oh well, thereís always next year.

We met the owner of Mid South at a restaurant later yesterday and talked to him for quite a while. Heís really cool- I enjoyed talking to him. He said heíd put us in for 23 if we want, Iím considering it.

Official numbers for the day according to the race timing weíre 58 miles, 7350 feet and 13.8 average. All in dirt.

Hereís a crappy picture of some of the roads.

It will cut fuel consumption.

Also, driving.

Home again, after it's 100,000 mile service, broken parts replacement, and detailing.

After I struggle with one like this I always wonder why. I mean, it's not an obscure or archaic word.

Well, these are new, so I suspect they were done up too tight at the factory. But I'll keep an eye on them. Since they can be adjusted without taking them out of the dropouts, it shouldn't be TOO bad.

that period of time before the race sucks. I feel like I should be doing something.


Got the time it takes for me to put contacts on down to about 15 mins. So thatís something.
