Seems I'm back to neglecting this blog, but more important priorities are -- well -- prioritized!
How about I copy/paste a snippet of an email exchange with a friend of mine about the upcoming Untamed New England race. He asked me how the 2012 course was looking and my response:
I'm particularly excited for the first 36 hours of racing that feature some of
the best (in my opinion) stages of the race . . . this means even the
slow teams will get to enjoy the epic cross-country treks, whitewater
rafting, etc. First course cut-off comes AFTER that really juicy stuff,
so I suspect the mid/back pack teams will come away with a tremendous
experience even if they race 2 days in what the race winners complete in under 24
hours. Historically, our slower moving teams could end up with a
death march or long forgettable bike legs to catch-up to the rest of the
race, but this year we planned specifically to avoid that.
