Just two more sleeps and I'll be running the Superior 100. This has been quite a year for me running-wise, and once Superior is over I still have one more race to do. Not that I'm looking past Superior. If anything, I'm doing just the opposite.
Prerace obsession is in full swing. I haven't done anything stupid (yet) like heading out for a last-minute 30 mile LSD run. And my schedule has forced me into a slightly easier taper than I would have liked. So fitness-wise, I've never been more prepared.
The wildcard for this race is the weather. We're going to be in a cold snap, with highs of the low teens, and lows in the single digits. Much cooler than the 30+ weather I've been training in. While the temps look like perfect running weather, I've completely forgotten how to dress for it! I think the smart thing to do is to wear a t-shirt and bring a nylon jacket. A pair of long pants in a dropbag for the middle of the night in case I need it.
Next blog post is either going to be a good one, or a really really bad one. We'll see.
