What are you doing this weekend? If you’re bored, you can check out Dan and I racing as a team in ÖtillÖ.
No, it’s not a relay, but instead we have to stay together for the entire race. Basically, we will start on an island, run to the water, swim to the next island, run across it, rinse, repeat. When we’re done, we’ll have covered 26 islands, around 6 miles of swimming and 41 miles of running. Just a guestimate.
The race starts Sunday night at midnight Eastern time (6am Sweden time). If you’re a night owl or if you plan on throwing a few late-night brews back for the holiday, you can watch the live video feed at www.otillo.se. You can also track us live via the athlete tracking since we’ll be carrying a GPS unit. Dan and I are Team 23. Sara McLarty and Misty Becerra, good friends, training mates and XTERRA warriors are racing as well as Team 111.
Even if you’re not a late-nighter, you early birds can catch us on the site as we’ll probably still be racing when most of east coasters (in the U.S.) are waking up.
Also check out my Facebook page (link on the right) as Alba will be posting pics via my phone.
Of course, there’ll be a lengthy race report coming, I’m sure. I have a reputation to live up to. Right, James?
