Three Days to 102.6 Miles

I feel like I should be sweatin’ it – but I’m not.

I feel like I should be a little scared – but I’m not.

I feel like I should be preparing days in advance – but I’m not

I feel like I should finally start resting – ok, I am.

The Ceremonious Final Training Run

Even though I really not supposed to be running, I went out for a really cool two-a-day. The first run was early in the morning on the short Simpsonwood nature trail. I took a camera to force myself to stop often, run slowly and simply enjoy just being outside. The second run, later in the evening, was more of an exploratory run. I found some new trails, close to my house, and they were KILLER!

I can’t wait to continue exploring those trails upon my return from Minnesota.

Next stop – 102.6 miles on the Superior Hiking Trail

So that’s it.

I’ll see ya (virtually) later.

Next time you see me, I’ll be sporting the much coveted 100-mile finisher silver belt buckle.
