Tomorrow's 25K

I'm doing this 25K tomorrow at Big Basin Redwoods State Park in Boulder Creek: Course Map

3410' elevation gain. Should be a walk in the park considering that covers 15.5 miles.

But, there is this amazing forecast to consider: Boulder Creek - California Weather Forecast on Yahoo! Weather. It baffles me how heat waves always come along when I am signed up for a run.

I'm hoping for nicely shaded trails. I mean, it is a park well known for it's gigantic Redwoods.

My goal? I want to finish in four hours! There, I said it. Four hours.


Until later.............

This heat is not a major inconvenience to someone who finished the Mt. Diablo marathon in temps over 90. Besides there's more shade there and not as hilly. It's something to factor in for sure, the heat, but nothing harder than what you've already experienced. As your fans have said, you are a rockstar!

You said it out loud! Can't wait to get a race report and pictures too, of course.
