Training Log - Friday, November 4, 2010
I'm not sure if a training log entry was even justified for this morning's activity. After waking up earlier than I wanted, due to pre-race jitters and related stomach problems, I got ready and waited for Richard to come by, so we could go for a short walk to loosen up our legs. I used the time to check the weekend weather reports, reshuffle gear, and worry about the race. Once Rich arrived at 6:30AM, we went for a short 2 mile walk discussing the events to unfold this weekend. To say that we are scared is an understatement.This is the most nerve wrecking personal challenge I have ever faced and that means something to me personally. I have done solo scuba dives at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, on a ship wreck, in the middle of the night. I wasn't scared then. I have faced a 300 lbs man in a kickboxing fight in a ring. I wasn't scared then. I am about to attempt to run 100 miles through the Tallageda National Forest and that scares the crap out of me.
