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!
