The M&M's were really cold. I grabbed a cup full of M&M's, well 2 cups really and held them in my mouth for like 1.4 miles before I gave in and just chewed them up. I thought they were still great.

So now onto a more serious note. How many competitors in the Whole Enchilada race cut the course? As in omitting Tower trail or Wedge Trail or Weigh Station?

based on strava fly by, not many people did at the spots you mentioned...

i thought they did a pretty good job at marking the course, so if someone did cut the course, they did it knowingly, not by accident

yeah, I wasn't confused at any point, even on the new stuff that I did not know at all.  I did think Thread was particularly leafy, which at times had me looking for the trail.  I know it well so wasn't too hard for me, but I wonder if others had issues.

Last year when I did the Whole, I know of at least 3 people who cut the course. They were on my Strava. Two of their faces I know and they were behind me, never passed me, but finished before me. (thats a sweet trick!  Smiley )

It wouldn't have impacted the winners though, just some guys mid-pack.

Interesting conversation about cutting the course.   Being basically a local, I thought about how easy one could cut out a loop... but you'd wanna know that you weren't seen... and not mebbe be a guy on pink wheels so someone you cheated wouldn't be all, "Hey, that pink wheel guy never passed me!"

And that part of Thread and Needle that hasn't been ridden in months?  I really wondered if I was on the course at times.  Mebbe a little assurance tape in the trees woulda been nice in there.
