Don’t mind the melodramatic tone I put forward in this video. I am not worried this will be my last video for this, but man, I am indeed scared after seeing the place up close. Most of the structures are a bit smaller than I expected, and a couple were shockingly more fearsome up close than I expected to find, particularly the barb wire crawl, which was iced over with about 4-6 inches of water underneath the ice. That is going to be absolutely brutal.

I hope you have gotten a kick out of this whole deal. I know it has been really fun and rewarding to work so hard towards something. I just hope I do you all, and myself, proud.

There was a rumor that the race would be streamed online. I cannot confirm if this is a thing that is actually going to happen or not. If there is news about this, it hopefully would be posted on the race’s main page – To watch it live, most of you will have to get up damn early, 6am EST and 3am PST. There are 6000 participants, so the likelyhood of actually seeing me (assuming they do stream the race) is VERY slim, and I have no real idea what sort of quality they will put out, but if you are curious, check out the site to see if they put the stream up. I am not holding out much hope for it this late in the game.

It’s happening, people! Want to donate? I’ll draw you a portrait for your troubles!

This is the last time I will be asking for these donations or offering portraits at these rates.
