Yesterday, I began the final run of tapering down to my event Saturday, Running with the Devil. I just jogged a 3.5 mile run and kept it comfortable. It was extremely humid yesterday, so I got a little preview of what it might be racing in July.
Last year, it was hot but not too bad. I think a lot of people on the mountain thought it was hot, but I didn't have a problem with the temps that day. Since I am a cold weather wimp, hot weather running is my thing. I kind of hope Saturday is blistering.
The plan of eating carbs and drinking a lot of water has begun. I plan to take, or have Maura take a, bunch of pictures that day and I will post all that I can that afternoon. I also will have a race report probably by Sunday evening.
We are 4 days out from the event. Yikes!
