I cannot believe how the race snuck up on me. Next friday I'll be making the long awaited trip down to NC with Derek, so we can do some running. I am merely going for another 50 finish, with the hopes of under 14 hours. Derek is going for the 100 finish and it's going to be a good time. We've secrued ourselves a "Green Hornet" aka my Grandfather's Durango so no more trying to cram ourselves and all of our stuff into the rabbit.
I am feeling good about the upcoming race. I have my normal prerace ritual of wondering if I am ready for it, did I pack the right stuff, and am I going to finish. To help with some of that, my co-workers helped me out by signing up to "run a mile" with me. I have lots of names and great messages to carry with my while I run. It will certainly help me at mile 41 when all I want it Mt. Dew and to sit down!
This next week is always the hardest, trying to find the balance between keeping active, but tapering. Luckily I have pretty easy gym workouts planned, and dance will help keep me stretched out.
Don't forget that the Booty Rumble is 2.5 months away... you'll want to get your name in for that ASAP. Plus, I heard a Rumor that the shirts this year are going to be just as sweet as last years... plus I bet some of you want a black slug shirt... so what are you waiting for?
