Bhavana, Raghav, and I are all doing CIM. I know there are some other Lizards out there who are heading to Sacramento too. We're a little ways off but I thought it would be fun to know who else is planning to do this race.
The race is long, and in the end, it's only with yourself.

Hard to believe it's only 7 weeks out... I could use a bit more time, but I'll be there, ready or not!

I'm on the fence- I'm registered, but I'm not 100% yet.

Two weeks to go! I figured it was time to get the TRL roster together and see who's up for a pre-race dinner. Who's in?

Hi Melissa, I had the same idea. I was planning on scouting out a restaurant when I get down there Friday and send something out. If you are already taking this on, I will cease and desist. Have you already picked a place? Thanks! Lou

Best of luck to all our Red Lizard CIM-sters!

Go show 'em what Lizard Nation can do.

I'll be there (I have to be in San Francisco Sunday night, so the timing was perfect). If you want a no-longer-marathoner in the group, count me in!

A warning, btw. Downtown Sacramento has palm trees. Tall ones. Those fronds come down hard enough in wind storms to break car windows. Depending on what the weather does before, during, and after the race, a certain amount of caution is called for.

I've browsed online a little, but that's it. I'm more than happy to relinquish to you, Lou, I'm not much of a decision maker!

I'm trying my best to convince myself to show up for this one. 27 mph winds forecasted with the heavy rain.

Looking forward to seeing everyone! It does look like it will be a monsoon but I'm still hoping the system moves out before the race. If not, can't say I didn't train in the rain here in good old Portland. Still, I did spend some time today scouting out alternative races in January in case this one ends up being used as a training run. It'll be an adventure!
