Final notes

The race will have updates

here

There will be race blog entries as well as timing updates. After my needling of Dr. Nic, I see they ARE using timing chips this year. I guess it is easier for the RD's to track people.

And, this Twitter thing may happen on my end. I have the user name "kettlefans" or just my name, but if you search it, it does not show up. I realized you have to actually "tweet" to show up on searches. It might show up on searches today. I figured out how to easily do updates from the phone, so I will have crew give a few updates (I did this mostly for the Mrs.).

Slept well. Now the first challenge..... putting up with Steve for 5-6 hours in a car (now that is ultra endurance).
