Raid 100 Final Thoughts

So by now the scratches should have mostly healed, you’ve stopped drifting off to sleep at random times during the day and you’ve eaten your body’s weight in real food. The Raid 100 is rapidly drifting backwards in the rear view mirror, so it’s probably a good time to reflect on what we’ve achieved in the course of a week.
