Final Pre-Race Run

Ran 2.9 miles @ 9:22/mile pace.
AHR-MHR - N/A (didn't feel like wearing strap)
Paved and dirt roads.
Mostly flat.
Lower 60s, steady rain.

Thankfully the steady rainfall during today's run isn't supposed to be the case for the Vermont 100 on Saturday. Upper 70s, dry air and sunshine are expected. Excellent.

No bears during today's run. My father and I did a super easy pace which will still by far exceed what I hope to do run this weekend. Words can't express my excitement and nervousness. But it's a good nervous. Not fear, more anxious anticipation. It will be a great time doing what I love doing in grand fashion while being surrounded by friends and family. What more could one want?

Best of luck to my friends Sue and Devon who are running the Tahoe Rim Trail Ultra this weekend out west (100 and 50 miles respectively).

Happy running.
