This morning I got up at 3 to get to the meeting place by 5:15. Do not ask me why I am taking the time for blogging this morning! This will be my last long training run before the race. I will do 10 miles today and then taper for the next two weeks. I am ready to taper. I really don’t like getting up at 3 on a Saturday morning…. but I sure like being done with my milage before other people are even awake!
I’ve got to get ready now. This is the route where my friend and I made up a song: The Hells are Alive, with the sound of groaning – oooooh, eeeeeeeew, uuuuuuuuh, oooooh. It is a tough course and I am tired to start. But last week I was not optimistic either and had a great time. So, I will just get to it.
You are my rock and my fortress; for your name’s sake lead me and guide me. — Psalm 31:3
