Great report Mrs L. I must admit that I tend to end up painting my toe nails the day before a race.
I went out for a bike ride this morning. Just over 24 miles on a flat route (less than 1000ft of climbing), with an amazing average of 13.8mph, it was just over 14 at one point but the last 3 miles seemed to be into a headwind and I was getting tired so it dropped down a bit.
Good luck all, I can't make it up there to support this year, but I have unfinished business with Outlaw Half. 1 out of 3 attempts successful, next one I want to do really well and have more than 15 minutes left before final cut off.
