After six months of obsessing, I can't believe I fly to Hawaii tomorrow. I've been told that the course is even muddier than usual and the forecast for this weekend is for more rain. Given that the race historically has a 25% finish rate (and only a handful of finishers over age 50), I'm glad that my training went well! My back is getting better and hasn't bothered me during my two 11 mile runs (Saturday and Tuesday).
You can follow me on the web HERE- should be updated every two hours or so; I'm #85. The race starts at 6AM (8AM west coast time) Saturday and we have 36 hours to finish the 100 miles and 49,000 feet of elevation change. My next blog post will be next Wednesday. Hope you all have as good a weekend as I'm going to have... or is that the wrong thing to say?
