Re-institution of the Saturday Rule
Boy, I was a wimp back then. That was when all of the events were within 5 miles of home, and we had about 1/4 (or less) of what we have now. Let me also say that 6:30 AM on a Saturday was a decent hour. I was up before 5 AM last week at least 80 miles from home. This year, it was 10 events in 11 weeks.
Next Saturday, I will not be up early, I can promise you that. In fact, my room gets bright in the mornings, so I may stay in the guest room where it's really dark. This girl needs sleep!
