Matt and I are leaving in the morning for Salt Lake City. Sunny will arrive on Friday. I am excited and nervous all at the same time. My unorganized packing is done. The flowers are watered and the animals are fed.
I have a pacer for the last 25 miles now and that makes me feel better. I have never met him but he is a friend of fellow Montrail/Nathan teammate, Bryon Powell. All is good. I am happy that he is looking forward to pacing me. For those who are interested, I think that the race has a webcast that you can watch to follow my progression. I am #186. I am hoping for a 27-28 hour finish.
Good luck to all who are racing this weekend. For everyone else, do something fun, something you might not normally do. You, know, STRETCH yourself.
