2014 Powderhorn 24
I registered my Super Team, Wat Gary, five minutes before the midnight registration deadline for Powderhorn 24 this year during Sunday Night Karaoke... #annastyle.
Now, I didn't know who was going to be on Wat Gary (not the real name... look it up if you're curious)... I registered my dogs as place holders (because they have email addresses... so they can have Facebook accounts... you know how it goes). I only knew that the team would be awesome. Something about what you endure in a 24 hour race physically, mentally, and emotionally brings out the best in people. Great people really shine under that kind of stress.
Then, like an idiot, I crashed on the track a week before PH24 and got a stupid concussion with a side of splinters. Sleep deprivation, high heart rates, and the potential for another high speed crash are actually the worst possible things for someone with a brain injury. I would have to sit this year out.
While what would have been my team went out and slayed, I got to take the year off, hang out with my friends, and take some pictures.
