Okay . . . it is REALLY bad luck to predict a future race outcome.
I mean, really . . . 50 miles in the summer. Who can say what will happen? Certainly not me! At least for sure!
But still . . . I'm willing to go out on a limb and predict I WILL finish the 2011 Boogie 50-miler. Now, realistically I may not be an 'official' finisher. I'm mean I may possible (ok . . . very likely!) miss the 'official' race cutoff. And I sure don't blame the race for having one! But I predict I WILL finish . . . eventually!
There you go! Nothing like 'staking yourself out' on a race . . . even one as hard as Boogie! I mean, Boogie has the big three:
1) hills (okay, not mountains, but still hills!),
2) heat (looking like this year's temperatures may not be all that bad . . . only low 90°s, and
3) humidity . . . not as bad as FL in the summer . . . but close!)
I'll do this!
The great predictor aka the 5k prep workout.
