This is it! If all goes as planned, one week from now my friend Christy and I will have run 50 miles (in a row). I don’t think I have ever felt more prepared for anything in my entire life. According to my RunKeepeer, I’ve put in more than 1,400 miles on the pavement since I made this commitment back on Aug 2, 2016. That is like running from my house in San Antonio, TX to the Outer Banks, NC (actually a little farther, lol)! I have all kinds of awesome gear to help support me in this race and short of getting sick or having some kind of silly injury (sprained ankle or something unlucky), I cannot see any other outcome besides kicking some you-know-what! I am seriously excited and totally pumped. I’ve never looked more forward to any race in my whole life – which is bizarre because I’m sure there will come a point where this race will transition from not only a physical challenge, but to a mental one as well, and I fully expect to struggle. But I’m ready. I have worked SO hard preparing for this race. I haven’t missed a single training run which in the last month or so even included back to back marathons and two 50k+’s. My goal is to finish injury-free and under 12 hours. I will definitely write a recap after I get home with all of the fun details! Please pray for our health and safety next weekend! Stay tuned!
