On Sunday, we attended the annual XTERRA BBQ at Obyan Beach. Hiroko san came from Tokyo as a main volunteer to assist with both races. It was great seeing her again and catching up on what's been going on in our lives.
Russ and Jim shared BBQ duties but he was the Spam king, making BBQ Spam sandwiches for curious guests. The two blocks of Spam were quickly eaten.
Most XTERRA races around the world don't organize beach BBQ's for visitors so it really makes the Saipan race a distinctive one. We look forward to seeing all the athletes again next year.
