i've paid my moneys and am now an official entrant in the Susitna 100. 100 miles in very sub-freezing temperatures in alaska in february. sounds like a party to me.
potential ways to die during the race:
*trampled/dropkicked by a moose.
*mauled/eaten by a grizzley or black bear.
*mauled/eaten by wolves.
*mauled/eaten by crazy backwoods alaskan.
*fall through the ice and freeze to death before i have time to drown.
*freeze to death on my bike.
*run over by a snowmobile.
any others i'm missing?
