My colleagues have been amazingly supportive throughout my training for HURT. It turns out that they've also been listening very carefully to everything I've told them about the race, as this little video one of them put together for me demonstrates:
Amazing, no? The amount of elevation gain is even accurate. And how does everyone know what I eat the night before a big run, down to the "several slices of garlic bread"?
Too funny. "You are truly insane" has never been delivered with such affection.
See you on the trail.
