This time tomorrow I will be on a plane to Utah. Ready or not, I'm running a marathon Saturday morning. Checked their local weather and it looks okay, 50 or so at race start (7 am). I hope to be able to have enough time to drive most or all of the course Friday after I get there. That will be last on the priority list though. First is get to the Hotel, next pick up race packet (Bib #3838), next carb up.
Two things occupying the gray matter - 1) knees are bothering me today - did 4 miles at a super slow pace this morning and really was uncomfortable throughout. Wonder if the weather has anything to do with that: cloudy and about to rain, high (for here) humidity. Going heavy on fish today - that has seemed to help before. Forced down some sardines an hour or so ago, so far I have managed to keep them down but it is still a little dicey. Gag factor is a 9.95 (out of 10). Salmon later, that usually goes down okay. Plus, lots of carbs today & tomorrow.
2) The other thing is wondering how I am going to do. Hard not to think about that. That will keep me from a good nights sleep the next 2 nights I'm sure.
Overall, I am looking forward to it. How it ends, stay tuned.....
