I really didn't even want to go to Wildflower this year. After last year's race, I thought, OK, four years in a row is enough, surely there must be something else to do in May besides camp next to 10,000 people in the heat. When signup time came around in December, I checked with my inner demons: sure enough, still don't want to go to Wildflower in 2005. Good deal, let's move on. Unfortunately, my husband Rob's inner demons were singing a different tune, to wit, he really needed to go to Wildflower and break 7 hours on the long course. Sigh. Might as well sign up for something.
