Two weeks, cool mornings and a bucketful of miles

With the North Face Endurance 50k in 2 weeks, my excitement level is running sky high. I am so ready to stand at the start line, headlamp on, and hear the gun go off...

Now, that's excitement for this runner.

The past week has brought fantastically cool temps with it, and training has benefited from it. It's amazing how much faster I run with a chill in the air. I bet this holds true for you as well.

As the race draws near, I should begin tapering this Saturday. I'm probably going to delay the taper though, until the following Wednesday. My fitness is more than adequate enough to give me the extra 4 training days. I will continue to be cautious as to prevent injury, and should show up on race day ready to live out my virgin ultra in living color !!!
