Katy, our neighbor, had given Steve and Rick stickers for the march. Steve had picked out the one with the Garmin saying. Between Holan giving Steve a Garmin watch for Christmas and the lack of food and sleep, it turned out to be very appropriate.
Steve and Rick spent the night at a hotel in Las Cruces, NM so it would not be as far to drive the morning of the race. It was late (around 11:15) when they got to the hotel because of a late dinner and the drive. After checking into the hotel, Steve continued to have chills so Rick kept adjusting the temp to keep him warm. As the night went on they did not get much sleep. The hotel started serving breakfast at 3:00 for those doing the Death March. Steve went down and got something to eat but Rick did not. These are the text keeping everyone up to date on how everyone was feeling.
