If you are planning on going back to the hotel and want to take an ice bath, you might start hoarding the ice ahead of time if there are a lot of runners staying at your hotel.

I'm not sure I can do the ice bath thing, but I'll keep that in mind. We'll probably head home after the race, so I'd do it there if at all. Thanks for the link to your checklist. I added a few extra things from there.
