Not a lot to report, because I'm tapering for my 50-mile trail race at Berryman. I'll drive down on Friday, and will be camping with fellow runners Hazel and Kyle in my Ultramobile Setup, near the start/finish line, again.
I had a great 11-mile trail run last Thursday night, with 5 of the Trail Nerds. We ran on the BuRP Parkway Trails, and crossed the Blue River 4 times and got our feet wet. Saturday we hit the same park again, this time with 10 Trail Nerds! Rick Mayo even made an appearance. I took Sunday off, I didn't run Monday, and will run 10 miles tonight in SM Park.
For the rest of my taper, I might run a little on Wednesday night, also. I will only lift weights today (before my run), and Wednesday. Thursday and Friday I'll just be a total slacker, other than attending a Board Meeting for the Kansas City Track Club on Thursday night. After the race, we might break camp and find a motel to shower and sleep, on Saturday night. I would prefer not to, but Hazel has requested this. (I don't mind "showering" in the water faucet in the campground). We'll wing-it, depending upon Kyle's plans, etc. Sunday, we'll drive the 6-hours back to KC. Monday is Memorial Day, and I'll be volunteering at the finish line for a big local race for the Kansas City Track Club. Monday, I might brew some homebrew, also.
