Almanzo brief recap

Considering we're heading out for a week tomorrow on vacation, I thought I'd be nice and jot down a few notes for all my slavering minions. I'll get a full on write up going when we get back. In the meantime a few shots and a few words.
The beginning

The middle

The end.

Even short stories have to have the 3 requisite pieces- beginning, middle, and end. In the beginning it was good- tailwind, chilly weather, and fresh legs. In the middle I couldn't decide which was most important- puking, crying, DNF'ing, or completion. In the end it was hard and the headwinds sucked, but it was worth it. I've got a lot to say about my 8 hours "out there" (since when don't I), but that will have to wait for another time. Preliminary placement was 20th out of 84ish starters and 64ish actual finishers (based on what I heard since actual numbers aren't out yet).
