I took all my KAEM13 race gear to do a final test run. I also tried out some of my planned race nutrition and recovery meals. It was a very specific block of work and went very well.
I was also very lucky to be joined by Pat for the week. He kept my motivation up, pushed me hard on the last few days and provided great company in the desert which can be lonely on your own. His company made the block much more enjoyable all together.

Here's the video that Pat put together from some of his footage from the our time in the desert.
