Good luck tomorrow, Rob. Based on your exchanges with Steve, yesterday, I would say your in a perfect frame of mind going into the race. It's cool to have a group of racers with which you can exchange some friendly, competitive banter.

Rob, good luck tomorrow and I hope to see you at the finish and chat. I will bein bib 7560 or something I think.

I can't wait to turn 50 later this year to escape your age group for three years! I will never run nearly as fast as you can so all I can hope to do is move up to higher age groups faster!

Thanks guys.

Yeah Wesley, we have a really good group of over 40 racers here in Utah. The competition is pretty intense, but friendly at the same time. It has meant so much to me to have these guys to compete with.
