So first things first, those who were seeking more information on Germany can find an english version here. Here is what I know, I will be flying from SFO to Frankfurt on November 3rd. I'll be picked up from the airport and taken to Dortmund where I'll take part in a three day staged race. On November 6th, I will do my shortest race since high school, less than a 5k! Day 2, I've got 35k and climbing (ummm, yes I do think this will be my favorite day... yup pretty sure in fact). And day 3, a 20k followed by some good German beer, I assume.
Surprise, surprise, I am nervous, anxious, looking forward to enjoying what I love to do in a new place. I really have no clue what to expect. I don't really know many folks that will be there. Luminita Zaituc will be racing. And two people from Transrockies will be there as well. Either way an experience. Bring on the adventure, 11 hour flight, and my favorite, running!
