I am currently sitting in downtown Valentine, Nebraska awaiting tomorrows start of the Sandhills Marathon.
The race actually starts somewhere else, but we will caravan to the finish at 5 AM. Leave our vehicles there and shuttle to the start. The start is at 6:30 AM.
This marathon is a small field with lot's of nice touches, making everyone welcomed.
The pre-race meal was great (spaghetti, salad, bread, cookies, and drink).
Getting up early in the morning will be the greatest challenge. I am looking forward to getting state number 41 in the books.
I will let you know how it went tomorrow.
