Kevin wrote me about his upcoming race this weekend and here is what he had to say about the potential conditions for the weekend:
Forecast is for overnight lows of -10 C and daily highs between -2 and -7. But this is a humid, possibly windy, coastal climate, so those temperatures are going to feel significantly colder. It's also very slushy (when warmer) or icy (when warmer or colder) here and, with the subzero temperatures coming up after a bit of a near-zero warm-spell, I'm anticipating awkward footing on frozen-solid footprints in former slush, but I'll find out soon!
Help me with Kevin M good luck and we look forward to reading his race report next week!
Thank you to everyone for your interest and support with NB. The event is now full with 200 racers and a blue grass band. See you in April + happy training!

Let me just say that I got a total kick out of coaching you all tonight. I watched you transition from icicles to fire crackers. Reading the motivational words and sayings may not have warmed my hands... But they did warm my soul. I enjoyed seeing you get to it and commit to what the cards instructed. To hear the thrill of pulling the buddy recovery card and how about that "fun" card!? Reverse high fives and cheering. Saving the best for last tonight was indeed the tailgate cheese spread courtesy of Arlana Taylor. #biglove

Help me "hip hip hooray" Nicole Todosichuk for finishing an epic 6 day MTB stage race in Colorado on August 14th at insane altitude.
"The Epic is composed of 6 BIG backcountry loops (3 loops for the 3-day Epic-curious events), each between 35 and 50 miles long. The event is unique in that it employs a cloverleaf format; each loop starts and finishes within a mile from downtown Breckenridge and utilizes the sprawling network of trails in both Summit and Park Counties."
Yea, she's a bit of a big deal. Nice work Nic!

Seawheeze half marathon represented, crushed and celebrated! Congrats gals!!
Just a quick update from the FAT DOG Team. Kevin ran well and finished the 70m in an unofficial time of 19hrs. Alana smoked her first 50miler in an unofficial time of 13hrs and had the pleasure & company of her good buddy Jamie Arnett, to pace her the last 30miles and they spent over 9hrs together out there together. Mr. Cory Davis was also out crewing and supporting the troops. The team got back to their rooms after their long journey at approx. 3am.
Sounds like some epic mountain memories were made and will be cherished for a lifetime.
Can't wait to hear ALL about it this Wednesday!!! So proud of you all!
