Up for the Challenge!

It has been a loooong time since I have posted. I have had a lot going on in my life outside of running that has been a major distraction. Training has fallen off severely. I will write a post over the weekend giving more details. Tomorrow I am running in the Mount Mitchell Challenge 40 Mile. Am I ready? Not hardly but I am well rested and have lots of frustrations to take out on the trail. I have always wanted to do this race and am excited to do it this year. I am not worried about time but want to have a good time and just enjoy the day in the mountains. Speaking of which, the day will start early as I am leaving at 4:00 AM for the ~2 hour drive to the start in Black Mountain. So I am off to bed. Look for a report and more details about what has been going on (hint: I work in financial services) of late over the weekend. Peace.

I was running with you when you found out the cutoff was in a couple of minutes. Sorry you didn't get to do the whole Challenge, but hope you enjoyed the marathon. I did, despite the conditions. Hearing reports of hypothermia, they probably made the right decision. Had it not been raining below & soaking people, the conditions might've been OK, but going into that wet probably caused some problems. What's next for you?
