Almost time

It’s just about time to leave for Two Harbors to pick up my race packet for the Superior Sawtooth 100. I am very excited to get out there again and see the sites all while having fun traversing the trails. I really do wish I felt better though. Over the last week or so I have had a bad cold and am just getting over tweaking my back (though not sure what from).

I think I will have a good chance of making it this year as long as my back doesn’t act up… Tough to know. All I know right now is I am going to go out there and give it my best shot. It might be enough and it might not be. As long as I have no broken bones, am not incapacitated, and I keep making the cut off’s for the aid stations, I will keep moving forward. Hopefully it is enough to get that dang buckle!

    I have found that running with the corners of my mouth raised helps with any physical pain I have. It works in couple of ways:
    1) preventative – corners up from the start keeps pain away longer
    2) treatment – corners up when the pain does come, and it will. Corners up gets your mind to aid your body in dealing with the pain.

    Have fun, stay loose and embrace everything. See you at the finish!
