Final Pre-Vermont 100 Run

Just a short three, and by the time I was beginning to get warmed up, it was time to stop.

The weather forecast for the Vermont 100 has improved somewhat since yesterday. As of now, the National Weather Service (who I trust the most) is calling for highs in the mid-80s with a 20% chance of thunderstorms. Supposed to be windy also. If that's the case, fine by me.

I continue to feel great about this weekend. Very excited and can't wait to get out there! I have a great crew and pacer. My friend and neighbor Kate will be crewing for me, and she'll be joined by my friend Al, who will also take over as my pacer at mile 70. Kate is one of those people who's always on the ball, and I've done a few long hikes with Al and know he'll be very entertaining as he helps bring me in during the final stretch. Wish me luck!

Ran 3.0 miles @ 8:15/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 140/153
Paved roads.
Slightly hilly.
Mid 80s, mostly cloudy.
