But, you never know what to expect on race day! Anything can happen . . . ANYTHING!
Legs could feel tired. But legs COULD feel strong! No possible way to predict which legs will show up Saturday. But no reason to feel defeated before I start!
I'm guessing by 20-30 miles I'll pretty much know how I'll feel. But even then, you really just don't know! The ups and down / peaks and valleys of an ultra run continue to amaze me! In 5 minutes I can go from feeling like I'm ready to die, to feeling like I could just go on forever! I've learned to NEVER make a snap decision ultra running. Be sure you go for 10 miles or so, at least!! Things change!
Here is what I hope . . .
- I get to 50 miles before I even start thinking.
- I can stay moving until at least daylight. I've never gone past 2:30 am!
- 75 miles would be awesome . . . the furthest I've ever gone. I sure would like to do that!
- If I could make it to 75 miles by 9 am . . . damn . . . I would have a chance! Rick Grey tells me that THAT should be my goal and then passion would take me in! We'll see!
But, like I said . . . you never know what to expect on race day! Anything can happen . . . ANYTHING! But one thing I promise . . .
I WILL have fun!
