Supposed to get soaking rains later today through tomorrow, so I was glad to unexpectedly get in an early morning run, due to waking up earlier than my alarm. Pretty short and uneventful, which is good. Nice to run in the cool, 24 degree temps.
Tomorrow will be a rest day. Saturday, the Stone Cat 50. Continue to feel good about the race, but at the same time, not nervous or pressured with any goals that are of real importance to me. I'll still do my best, but I really don't care much what happens and just want to have fun out there. Break eight hours? Hey, cool. Having a bad day, something goes wrong and I finish in over 10 hours? Ah, so what. Just gonna enjoy the ride.
Ran 3.1 miles @ 7:47/mile pace.
Mid 20s, partly clear skies.
Brooks Mach 11, long pants, windbreaker, long sleeved shirt, short sleeved shirt, refl. vest, beanie, gloves.
