It's all over but the running...

 I'm checked in, weighed in (at a robust 154 pounds- that's a gain of over 10 pounds since the beginning of the year). I've seen Hal Koerner and hung out with Brandon and Mr Sweeney (who was being short with me... obviously here to race, not chat with friends). Jake Gyllenhaal was at the pre-race meeting in disguise of sorts. Actually, he blended very well with the trail crowd with a big beard. I think they are making a movie. Kind of cool. All the high peaks were covered in snow when I drove in but it's already gone. Bummer really. I was hoping to to run in some snow. Race start is supposed to be about 39 degrees. Which is in a few hours! Alarm is set for 2:45am. Holy sh!t that's when some bars close.
 I'll blog as soon as I'm done and back to the room. Thanks to everyone for the awesome support!

You could set the alarm earlier and grab a beer. That might help, come to think of it. Time to rock.

So glad to see that The Time Has Come and you find yourself there and in Good Spirits. I have been following along (quietly) with your training and blogging. Keep it up! Best wishes!

I just wanted to say that I'm thinking about you here on the East Coast! No matter what happens in the race, you are a person I look up to. You are the type of person I want to be. They say these types of races show character---well, if that really is the case, you will be atop the podium.

Thanks for everything Tim! See you on the other side :)
