In Seattle

Well, I made it here in a long day that started at 4:15AM. The air travel was very smooth and I got here in time to explore a bit yesterday, probably walking about 5-6 miles all told. This included finding a good microbrewery of course, walking around a bit, seeing some great views of Mt. Rainier, going to the convention center to pick up my race stuff, and going out to dinner later with the National Team.

I love the weather here. It is a good 30 degrees cooler than back in Virginia. On the flight in, we flew over beautiful and rugged snow covered mountains just east of here. Makes me wonder again how much hiking I will get in after the race, as there is still a lot of snow at elevation.

Well, this is it for a few days. GO TEAM!

Fantastic! That seems like a lot of walking but you still have a day of rest. I know that you're going to have a fantastic time before, during and after the 'RACE'. HA, I had to emphasize the race part!
