Well, almost back, I am crashed in a hotel room in WV.
The first loop took longer than planned. So I knew the next 3 loops would be slower. And I still had to drive home Sunday. So I waved off my pacer for loop 3.
I tried really to get myself out there for loop 2, I had almost convinced myself, but I was just too scared to be out there, all alone, for a night loop.
Oh well. If you never try, you will never know if you can succeed.
