Just to answer a question asked about the shirts. The shirts are for both teams. We decided to get the same for both and just put all the sponsors on them. There are quite a few people doing both races so this saves money from sponsors and out of pocket. I'll give totals when I can.
I am not fast either and everytime I think I am really getting faster I read the blog and get smashed. O'well I am just going to do my best and have a whole lot of fun.
