Thankfully, the weather man was wrong again. Barely any rain fell last night, which allowed us to go on our trail run as scheduled. I met up with Richard at his house at 5:30 AM. James was on a business trip and Mike wussed out on us for being tired. Since when is that an acceptable excuse;-) Anyway, we had decided to run up the trails to the Monte Sano state park ranger station for a nice 10 mile out & back. The weather was actually perfect, a nice 50 degrees or so and barely any wind. We didn't even need to bring water with us, since we were going to take advantage of the water fountain at the ranger station. I kept my heart rate at a very comfortable level the entire time, never exceeding 170 bpm. We ended up running just under a 12 minute per mile pace, which should be our target pace for the North Face Endurance Challenge GoreTex 50 Miler we have coming up this weekend in Pine Mountain, Georgia, about an hour south of Atlanta at the Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park. I am slowly starting to get excited and worried at the same time. Since this is the first running of this particular race, there wasn't much info other than the participant's guide I found online. I might have to crunch some numbers tonight to figure out the elevation gain based on the elevation profile provided in the guide.
