Top 'O the World!
I hammered down the trail, passing rocks and trees like they were standing still.

Wow Dave! A wave? As in, no additional letters behind that A? Great job! I'm sure you'll smoke the course.
Right on Hereford...
No additional letters! Of course, I don't think I can run sub-38 on the BB course, which is the A wave standard... I need to use times from those fast courses to get up there. I'll be feeling out of place and starting from the rear of the pack, hoping to beat just one person in my wave! To compound matters, my bib # is A012, which one would expect to see on a VERY fast runner... somehow, the roadrunners club team got bibs A008, A009, A010, A012, and AA012 and AA013.
Dave, just joined this group...I'm Dakota RR (aka, Mark) and I'm from the Republic of Boulder.
I'll be right there in the back of A-wave with ya. If you see a guy in a bright red BB08 shirt and red Pearl Izumi shoes, that's me (helps my wife spot me in the crowds).
Also my first time in A, and I will be feeling out of place and hoping to beat just one person, too. I think I'll have to frame my bib when I'm done!
Thanks for joining us, Mark!
Looks like we have a race between you and Dave. Good luck!
Welcome to the group Mark! I'm somewhat familiar with you from the Swamp...I tend to lurk there a bunch. I'll keep an eye out for you tomorrow. I think I'm going to be wearing a blue Boston marathon singlet, bib A012, and red shorts.
Good luck everyone! I predict PR's for all!!!!
I sucked. Better than last year, though. I really sucked then! Ended up running 39:57, a minute and a half slower than I had hoped. Anyone else feel it was a little muggy this morning?
On a more positive note, I did meet Mark (Dakota RR) before the start. Actually, he found me somewhat randomly in the CB corral about 6:30. I last saw him pulling away from me somewhere around mile 4! He was looking pretty strong!
By the way, I did see a Michelob Ultra beer tent over in the expo area...of course, there was no actual beer anywhere near it!!!
