I have learned several important lessons during training for the upcoming Double-Chubb 50K.
1) You never know what you will find in the woods. Last week was a pair of car doors. This week was a headless statue. As soon as I seen it, I HAD to get a picture with it. Thanks Kate!
2) Everyone writes better reports than I do.
3) Blogjacking is legal and actually encouraged.
So please check out these great reports and pictures from some of my training partners:

I'm sure you've heard me complaining about packs before. Why can't someone make a pack the way I want them too? I've tried several now, and still haven't found the perfect one. Even considering the several things I ended up not liking about my current Camelbak pack, one thing was always good: the bladder. This Fall that all changed when the hook on the top of the bladder broke during the National Championship race in Utah leaving the bladder scrunched up in the bottom of my pack, still usable, but far from ideal.
The new hook is now installed and ready for some extended testing at the LBL 24hr Adventure Race in April. Thanks for the great customer service Camelbak!
