I'm hoping to be there next year. This is supposed to be my last year of grad school, then I get a real job and make enough money to travel for a race or two each year other than IDN.

I did it 2-3 times in the 2000-2003 timeframe. Fell each time and still managed to finish with the main advanced pack. One year we caught some of the pro women, which caused a bit of a commotion because a couple of them hopped in with our pack (which was against the rules), and apparently it actually affected the final placements a bit.
You don't improve by training until it hurts; you improve by training after it hurts.

I love the phrase "I quit". It beats more of my opponents than I do.
