RRR 50

Heading out to Steamboat later today to race the Run Rabbit Run 50 miler this weekend. I'm still not feeling great, but I am feeling significantly better than I was a week ago. I've even had a couple runs this week which I would say I was feeling strong. We'll see how it all plays out. This is certainly the weakest I've felt going into a race in quite some time. A good strong run on Saturday could be just the thing to snap me out of this funk, but a really tough race could be hard on my mind and body. I think I am prepared for this though. I'm not expecting a lot and I have no intention of allowing this to be an outing which has a significant negative effect on me (physically or mentally). More or less I just see it as going out for a nice, scenic, and fun run in the mountains on Saturday morning. If I can keep this perspective I think it will be very easy to have a "successful" race, even if I don't feel as physically strong as I would like.

Good luck - don't push yourself if you are not feeling well. Have a fun time and hope after this race you are feeling better.

Are you competitive? It seems like you run from a non-competitive state of mind and win races. Nice.
