Driving up the I-5 on Friday, getting closer to the Bay Area, the skies opened up, and it was pouring like crazy. Uh oh, am I going to be running 50 miles in the rain come Saturday? I didn't even bring a running jacket should that happen.
As it turned out, the rains stopped in the early evening, and the stars twinkled happily in the night sky. The following morning, we had perfect running weather. How perfect, would you say? Perfect enough that my official time was 10:46:14, meeting my original goal of an eleven-hour finish.
Now, the big question is, do I have the balls and the commitment to put my name in the hat?
Race report and photos will follow. For now, I'm sending out my full-hearted gratitude to all my friends and family who supported me in this idiotic endeavor. :)
