Race eve. Just finished a dinner of salmon and mashed potatoes. Tasted pretty good. Did a short 3 mile run this morning and felt good. Spent the rest of the day resting and getting race day things ready. Have been a little unsettled today getting all of the details down of meeting the buses at Boston Commons and then the ride up to Hopkinton. Bus leaves at 6:30AM so it will be a wake-up at 5:00AM. Dress and eat a little something.
We will walk to meet the bus then I will be in the start area for a few hours before wave 1 starts at 10:00AM. Taking things to sit on (ground will be wet from rains), eat, and drink. Also, taking extra clothes. Race temp at start is supposed to be around 42 with a finish temp in the 50's. Partly to mostly cloudy skies.
So here we go. It's that time. Boston Butterflies are swarming and the energy is at its max. Will try and get a good night's sleep. I'll write a race report tomorrow evening. Thanks for all of your support!
Forward we go! May your roads, trail, and pools be happy and safe and may they bring you peace of mind!
