Congrats, BG! Over 55k's, nothing to sneeze at!
Had to laugh, first started using pickle juice in 1981. Back then, poured it from a pickle jar. Now they sell it in the mini/individual use bottles. Still use it on long/hot days & events but tastes the same now (yuk) as it did then. It works! That said, marshmallow is much tastier :D .

Awesome, bg! Ultra Congrats! What sort of a course was the 34.47 miles?

A sip of pickle juice also works great, in the middle of the night, for leg cramps.

This team motivation is heady stuff ... we'll be at the beach for most of week-3 of the Corky Summer Challenge, and all I can think about is how I can possibly accomplish my 30K and stay in the pack! (Maybe, I'll be able to accidentally "find" a C2 rower, as did the resourceful danwho!)
