Tick tock...

I pick up Nicole from the airport in a few hours. Excited doesn't describe it. The house is clean, the dogs got baths, and her car is washed and waxed. Now the waiting... I'm thinking a trip to the grocery store and library is in order.

Here is and interesting article about distance runners and their knees.

It's hard to escape the knowledge that much of the reason I am excited about the 50k next weekend is because completion will mean I am physically and mentally a bit closer to running 50 milers. After all, my running desire is not to go faster, but farther.

See you at the finish line.

edit:
Just found out that Scott Williamson and Adam Bradley broke the Pacific Crest Trail speed record by about 21 hours finishing in 65 days, 9 hours, and 58 minutes. That's over 2600 miles from Mexico to Canada chasing David Hortons record. Amazing.

I can not wait to read about the race. My girlfriend ran a 5:08 today!! She said it was a hot one out there.

I wish I could have run that one.

Wow, a 5:08! That might have been good enough for top female runner yes? It's a shame you couldn't be there today. Working (slowly) on the race report now...
