14[hr100] Re: Food at Hardrock
- Feb 11, 2000Last year, I was too chicken to walk across this log (the one
right out of the Sherman aid station), and shinnied across
straddling it. The nubbins of branch were kind of hard on the
butt, but much better than falling into a swift creek at 3 am.
There IS a way to do it safely.

No way! This is Hardrock. If we start to dummy-down the
course, where does it end? What's next - a guardrail along
Bear Creek, Ouray or helium ballons to make the climbs
easier? Participants should rely more on their own ingenuity
and less on the race organization to safely and successfully
negotiate the challenges of the course.
