If you're wondering where I've been, I've been recovering from a god-awful trip to East coast, followed by 26.2 miles of voluntary suffering (why do I keep signing up for these things?!).
I'll post about my trip later (I did buy a new hat, go me).
Let's focus on the good part. That's sad that dragging my ass across 26 miles of hot, dusty trails is the GOOD part. The trip was really THAT bad.
