Re: NOLAN - HARDROCK
- (X-posted to the Hardrock mailing list).
I also think it would be more convenient to do Nolan's
14 2-3 weeks after Hardrock (assuming I'm in. I sent
in my entry Nov. 2). With 5 weeks between races, I'd
have to return to Florida and then re-acclimate to the
altitude like I did last year.
Anyone else planning on doing Nolan's 14 next year?
