I'm signed up for this 50K: Angel Island (Jun 20). Yah, that's a week from Saturday.
With all the other stuff going on, I think I forgot to mention that I have signed myself up. I am taking a victim with me too. (haunted laugh noise) Theresa agreed to keep me company on this run. She, like me, has run one ultra-marathon prior to this one. We are both a little nervous about the 8-hour time limit. The cut-off is 6.5 hours at the 42K (26 mile) mark. I've completed a trail marathon in under six hours (barely) so I have faith we will pull it off. The elevation gain isn't terrible, at 4,070 feet.
I am going to do a long run tomorrow (still deciding where) and on Saturday I will be meeting Theresa and her friend Toni in Oakland. We'll be doing another long run along the Golden Hills Marathon course. Then it's the ever dreaded TAPER! Have I told you how much I despise tapering? Huh, have I? Although, thinking back to Diablo (last Saturday), I did no tapering at all. I had that really bad week prior and ran more than I should have (34 miles) because, well, I had to run to stay from going completely crazy. I must have been very tired going into the Diablo 25K. More tired than I knew.
That's it for now.
