Sick. Nasty, snotty, congested, achy. Sick. This is not how I wanted to lead into Cactus Rose. Saturday's 50 mile trek through a race "where everything Stings, Scratches, or Bites" is going to be a beast. According to the race website, "the course is a 25 mi loop that we have made every attempt to avoid what is flat and to find what is nasty." Oh, and keep in mind that "there are NO volunteers at ANY aid stations and we do NOT provide ANY food. Just water and ice." Sound fun?
