|Finish line at Rocky Raccoon 100 Miler|
Granted, I don't really care about football or pro team sports in general BUT I knew the superbowl was this week...sheez.
I'm more excited to get updates tomorrow on the Rocky Raccoon 100 race. The mens race should be a sprint with lots of carnage after 75 miles. I'm really looking for Liza Howard to run well and would like to see her nab the women's course record set by the scantily clad Jenn Shelton (14:57). That was set on the older, easier, faster course, so if Liza breaks it, well, wow.
Me, I'm in that weird no-mans-land of transition into a taper the last 7 days before a race (Cool Trail Run 34 miler). Run, not run, how hard, hills, flat, I don't know. I'm in good shape and want to hit the start line fresh and hot to race. I'll fly into Reno Thursday and stay with my friend Darren, hang out with him Friday, then drive over to Cool, CA race morning. Darren is racing too and is in sharp shape after a solid block of consistent training. I'm looking for him to run over an hour faster than his finish last year.
Good luck to the runners at Rocky Raccoon tomorrow and good luck to whichever teams are playing in the superbowl.
