A bunch of us from Team UnRelayTed are meeting up the night before at a nearby vacation rental to crash and get to know each other a bit. Some of us were friends before, but many of us strangers. It’s been fun following each other on social media over the summer and getting acquainted.
I checked the leg maps and no joke at least 90% of the legs have some kind of lake in the background. Wow. We are so lucky to be racing in #puremichigan!
My latest challenge is some knee pain which my doctor preliminarily thinks is a torn meniscus. I just went and had an MRI. If we can agree that surgery is the proper course of action, I can get this done and be at least 70% by the race. It isn’t getting ANY better from resting. Although my version of resting includes walking. #sorrynotsorry
Now we just are waiting for our official start time to be assigned. I’ll check back one last time as I’m packing for this epic race.
