Kent came through and his team never left his side during a long cold day. He wanted to "see" and do the boulders one more time. We do have your bladder and pack which is all washed out. Email me at email@example.com Glad you came and thanks for also supporting the Fly-in breakfast.

Thanks Laurie, from someone who is "behind the scenes" very deeply, I think the term "chaos" was a tad overkill. I am very involved in this event, although, I primarily deal with the trails. I can tell you that the organization of this event from registration to the aid stations to the pre and post race activities are simply incredible. I do a lot of different events and the aid stations at Mega have very few issues and are typically run by the same people each year and they, as you said do a great job and without them we couldn't have such an awesome event......Thanks for coming and look forward to another great event next year!

At zero hour I would say it is 36 hours work in 24 hours. Pure chaos is not what we consider a good description! You are at ground zero in the morning watching the launch, that is the craziest time when preloaded stations are being loaded and sent off, registration is at full swing all while breakfast is being served. Now aide stations can get pretty crazy as the rush comes in.

Question: How did our Marine make out on Saturday? Saw them on the boulder field! I hope he had fun like we always do....HARD work, but worth it all = FUN!
Talking to a volunteer on Sunday at the Fly-In Breakfast - he laughed and says it is pure chaos behind the scenes, but I told him it runs like a well-oiled machine from the runners/hikers point of view. We cannot do it without THEM. This is the hardest thing I love to do! LOVE IT! I cannot express what it means to me, to be able to do this run every year, to meet the other runners, to feel so fulfilled when I am done, to know what other people go through to make that happen for me. And there is nothing I would change/make better. You (Mega creators) just shine! I thank you again this year for a wonderful beat-me-to-a-pulp experience! p.s. Anyone find my old red/black/gray Camel-Back in the ladies' shower?

Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all the volunteers and organizers for the 2014 Mega. Another great race with great people---loved every minute. To those who may have missed a special moment when a true gentlemen pronounced his love for recently lost girlfriend from on top of boulder field, well let me say it brought tears to my eyes and made the next twenty miles a little easier to handle.
