TNF100 Solo:More Pictures!(Part 2)

“A good retreat is better than a bad stand.” -Irish Proverb

A few more hours  before the TNF100 race, I tried to sleep inside our lowly tent located just near beside the base camp. However, due to many distractions like the underground  car racing  near the area, conversations of people beside our tent  and  the noisy  equipments of the staff (TNF) made that impossible. I just closed my eyes and tried to imagine the course of the race.

Two hours before the race, I tried to unload and went to the portalet very near to us, it’s still clean and untouched. I stayed there for 15 minutes but unable to for my system was not accustomed for the 2 am ritual. Worried that it will boomerang later on, I took one Immodium.

At 3 am, we are required to submit those mandatory gears for inspection and after a short program, the race started.
