Ok, so this past week I've been preoccupied with work so much that I haven't given much thought to this weekend's race, the Dick Collins Firetrails 50 Miles. But now that it's just a little over a day away, the enormity of the challenge ahead is beginning to weigh on me. 50 miles--now that's a lot of ground to cover. Just at the beginning of this year, the thought of running this long is insane. Several months later and over a thousand miles later, the insanity of this undertaking has not lessened, though now I am actually going to attempt it.
I've been pretty relaxed till I started to talking to a couple of friends about it this week, and well, I wonder if I've been taking this race a little too lightly. As evidenced by my previous post, my training has not been all that great which makes this race even daunting now.
Oh my, what have I gotten myself into?
Well, I'm traveling tomorrow to the Bay Area for the run. The race is on Saturday morning, and hopefully at the end of the day, I can say, "50, now that's a big number I just ran today."
