Even as someone who is practiced and conditioned for something like this, you still have to have hydration throughout. I've seen experienced runners think that they can go without it have (at the very least) minutes added to their runs or have found them sitting on the sidelines after dehydration sets in.
This is my first year, so I'm not completely aware of the demographic, but I'd assume somewhat that the majority of people who might be interested in this may not be experienced runners at all. This could potentially be a very dangerous situation if it's not planned seriously.
Too many great shows from Roo's past to recount here. I find that I am often caught off guard by acts that I didn't know or weren't totally into yet when it comes to blow away shows. For instance, though there were many great shows last year, I was really blown away by Moon Taxi and The Roots.
So all that being said, I have no idea who or what will blow me away this year but I am not going to place any bets
this reminded me that, last year, rodrigo and gabriella quacking slayed, and i was not expecting it at all.

That's a really solid point. For someone that's practiced and hydrated you would likely be fine without a hydration station, but by Saturday most people will probably need some extra fluids. And 9am is a pretty late start for that kind of heat. Though I've never been to a 5k with a shower available.

I regularly run 5K's, I'm excited to do this if they do it correctly. However, I'm a little apprehensive that they haven't thought this fully through.
5K's run in the summertime heat are pretty normal, but they have to be carefully planned and staffed. Ones that I've run in 80+ degree heat routinely have at least three support stations along the route that have water, first aid, and then another at the end with tons of fruit and other refurnishing foods. Additionally, ones that are in remote locations typically have showers available as well.
From the little information available on Bonnaroo's page about this 5K, it looks as if they haven't planned this far ahead and potentially won't have any of this available. I've emailed them and posted on their FB page asking for clarification, but as someone who does this regularly, I simply can't advise running this until Bonnaroo puts out additional information clarifying that they're planning this with care and taking it seriously.
Side-note: This is a little self centered but do you ever feel a bit like you must be totally uninteresting if no one ever clicks on something to make the little balloon pop up on your profile. Not looking for any lolz. I was just wondering if it's just me? cr****
It's ok man... without karma points, that's the new crack
I forgot about them. Yea this shouldn't be some sort of point game imo ... cr****

OH MY GOD, I had looked at Tyler's tour dates before and read something wrong, I thought he was performing in Japan during Roo, just went back and checked and realized that he has roo open, I can not contain my excitement at the moment. I have yet to hear a recollection of an Earl show where the audience didn't suck. I saw him at Buku '13 and the crowd was as bad as Coachella. So, I agree that Tyler will probably make an appearance at this show; but for the record, contrary to some of you saying that it is unlikely that it will be JUST earl, it is possible for him to do it without him. No other members of OF joined him for his set at Buku. Instead he did his set with Flying Lotus. So, I'm sure he will have SOMEONE with him during his set, whether it be Tyler or someone else, i can not say, but there probably will be someone. Has anyone seen a GOOD show that was just Earl?
F*ck me..This game really will make you see connections anywhere if you look hard enough. Jimmy, while you have appeared to be a helpful townie, I did notice a couple things: Day 1, you were responsible for the hammer vote on LD. During that time you also questioned my vote for Tejas, before you briefly settled on him (Distancing?). When it looked like he was going to take the hit, thanks to some random BS from LD you changed to him, making him the kill.
Day 2 you ended up initially on linana, but changed to Boneroo with two of the later known confirmed mafia. Again, you shuffled your vote, continued to appear helpful, and avoided suspicion. Day 3 was a washout. I don't know what the f*ck happened Day 4 cuz dammit this game should have been over by all outward appearances.
I can't really find any direct links from the known mafia to Phi, beyond Amy's "Good job for no votes!" buddy up, and Tejas' attacks that could be distancing. He certainly hasn't been very helpful for the town at any rate, and I'm not placing a vote until he reads and actually posts what he's thinking.
So, I'm totally a dry ice noob, but it seems like a good option for Bonnaroo! Can you only keep liquids cold with dry ice, I'm planning on bringing two coolers (one for food, one for drinks)... should I get regular ice for the food cooler?
Any non-sealed food you place in with dry ice in a cooler will become carbonated. It is kinda awesome with fruit but weird with things like bread, cookies, ect.

For those who attended last year (or any other years they may have had it), is going to the "Trapped in the Closet" sing-along better than sleeping? There was a big crowd for it last year after the Bobcat movie, so I was curious.
I have the utmost admiration for anyone who can or does run. My body is just not genetically programmed to want to or to be able to do it. Should we start a pool to guess how many people will be throwing up during the race?
