Today I ran with Scott Jurek. Not just me, obviously, but it was pretty special. I will admit that I didn’t run the whole course – given that tomorrow is my first ultra, I figured that a little bit was enough. It was still pretty special, though.
So, that was pretty ace. He’s such a lovely guy (as if you expected anything different!) and he was very encouraging regarding tomorrow, even writing a (preemptive) congratulatory note in the cover of my Eat and Run. So now I have to finish.
And that brings me to the next point:
I’m oscillating wildly between terror and confidence regarding tomorrow’s race. I am pretty sure I will finish – no, scrap that – I know I will finish, but I think it might hurt a lot. But, as they say, pain only hurts.
Okay. I’m off to do some foam rolling and some carb eating. I will let you all know how I go tomorrow, of course!
