OK, one more post before I leave for Tejas.
The run last night at SM Park was great. The running conditions were perfect, and we had 3 newbie Trail Nerds show up to run with us on the first loop. We warmed-up at a nice pace and did the loop in 41 minutes. For the 2nd 4.7-mile loop, some Half-Crazed Special Idiot (me), pushed the pace and we did a 34-minute loop on the rocky and hilly trails. It was fun, though. There were no *fatalities, and only the "usual suspect" fell down in a muddy section toward the end of the run.
It was my last run before this Saturday's 100-miler. I feel READY.
* Trailrunning Fatalities are always buried in a shallow, unmarked grave (with very little ceremony).
