Nearly to the top of Robie Point I see a shadow pass quietly around my own. I looked up, vultures. Suddenly I feel like a runner living in a Far Side cartoon.
I survived the three training runs and feel as though it was like getting a doctoral degree on the course. Not only did I get some serious heat training in (90+ F) but we got to run the canyons from Robinson Flat to the finish in Auburn CA over the three days. Between running the course and talking to past participants I feel I'm in great shape for the run. Now I just need to break it all down and set up the plan.
I'll expand more on the whole experience but I'm recovering from 24+ hours of driving and 70 miles of running so I'm a bit knackered.
I've got lots of pictures that I will include in my next post. Feet are good, legs are good, and a healthy respect for the course has been firmly implanted in my brain. Now all I need to do is use my brain when I run!
