I forgot to add something about the race expo.
Jean-Maria and I were both wearing our Rocky Raccoon race t-shirts at the expo. It is a cute picture of a raccoon wearing lime green running shoes. So, when I walked over to get my chip pre-scanned, the guy at the computer looked at my shirt and asked me if I knew how far Rocky Raccoon was. I knew he was thinking about the 50 mile / 100 mile race, even though the shirt was from the 25k / 50k race in the fall. I told the guy of course I know how far it is, and I had done the 50 miler this past February, and am planning to do the 100 next year if everything works out according to plan. He looked at me a little strangely.
