Greetings everyone! Just sitting here outside my RV enjoying the sounds of joyful birds while enjoying a beautiful purple and pink sunset. Of course, don’t let that fool you, It may be beautiful on the outside, but inside my body is undergoing some serious stress as we are camping at the starting line of tomorrow’s 50K. Hard to say if I am even close to being ready for this, but if not, I only have myself to blame (shhhh, don’t tell Linda, I like to use her as my excuse … takes the edge off of failure ha!). In an effort to quell the rising concern, thought I’d make a quick post from a previous race.
A couple of weeks ago they held the annual running of the Steamboat Classic in the Peoria area. Basically a local race that just happens to be on the same training course my friends and I use throughout the year. Well, for at least the difficult part, we do not bother with those wussy 2 mile flats into and then out of the monster hills – those are for those 4 milers that are not brave enough to head up into the hills for the full 15K
Hit the jump to read more about how the race went!
