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.
