This stamp makes me an official LOTOJA participant. I stood in line for a good hour today to pick up my packet.... ie: race number, timing chip, free t-shirt, the ever important vinyl logo for my car window, and other such swag. While there I had to sign my life away on some official looking wavier. And also get my leg stamped.
We leave tomorrow afternoon. A big group of us from the neighborhood. 3 relay teams of 5 people each, 6-7 single riders, and a few spouses. Plans are for a big dinner before splitting up to a few different family cabins for the night. I ride the first 35 miles of what will end up being 205 miles for my team. I start at 5:45 AM in the cold and dark. Wish me luck!
