Normally, that would be no big deal. Except for the fact that I'm running Salt Lake City Marathon the weekend before. WTF?
I was pretty jazzed when I went to bed. Didn't think I'd sleep well, but I did. Really did think, for just a moment when I woke up, that perhaps it had been something stupid I'd done in dreamland. Not so much. Checked my e-mail and, sure enough, there was confirmation that I had indeed jumped on board the BSIM train...that's leaving really soon.
I have run plenty of marathons in my seven year "career", granted...but never two with just a week between. Earlier this year I did Napa Valley Marathon two weeks after Austin...and did the California race faster than the Texas one. But this?????
Salt Lake is largely downhill, so it should be no problem. I'm looking for my best time ever there, based on recent form. Big Sur is NOT downhill, by any stretch of the imagination. There will be no PR's on the coast for me. But...it should be fun.
I'll at least start with a bunch of folks I know from the Twitterverse, dailymile, Just Finish, and even Facebook. I'll get to met them in real life, and that should be a hoot. Looking forward to seeing what they're really like...when we catch the bus to the start at 3:45AM.
Hope I have a better day at work today. Afraid of what I might commit to if it all goes pear-shaped again.
