I started running in January of 2004 to get in shape. I had gained too much weight and felt terrible. I was able to run my first 5K 3 months later. 2 years later and 50 lbs lighter, I have continued to push for greater goals and have run 5 marathons and I am training for an Iron distance triathlon now. Everyday I wake up with a positive attitude towards life, training and my future.

2 days out from the Rim Rock run and in traditional thinking, I really don't feel prepared for this race.

That is usually how I feel after a taper anyway.

Well, whatever happens, happens. I just want to go out there and have some fun. I ran a short 3 miles this morning as a relaxed run. Although my legs felt a little stiff I think they are strong enough for the challenge. I just need to make it up the first 8 miles and I will be good after that. Hey it's not like I'm running a marathon. (3 miles short)

The weather is suppose to be super for the run. It should be cool in the morning and then warm up nicely. Not too cold though and I should be able to wear shorts for the event. I hate getting too warm.

Tomorrow I'll be driving out there. Hopefully getting there early enough to pick up my packet and take a drive over the top of the route during the daylight. And then get in about 2 miles of warm up and stretching. So, I'll give everyone a race report on Monday.
That is if I am physically able tooooooooooooooooo
