I thought I would post a much more positive blog before I leave town. The post before this is true. I had written it, then sat on it for about 23 hours, read it, and decided it was still valid emotions for me.
BUT I do have to say I'm horribly excited. I LOVE adventures! I love to visit new places and see new trail! I'm as prepared as I am going to be. I got my drop bag packed; my clothes ready, and am charging the camera battery so I can document the whole journey. Or, at least, the first few hours.
Hurricane Earl has been adding an additional level of excitement, but I don't think it's going to affect western Virginia at all, maybe contribute to the cooler temps-it should be in the high 70's during the day, and high 50's at night. Weeee! Great running weather.
Okay, I'm off to work all day, get home around 930 pm and try to get to sleep asap. My day will start early-3 am wake up call!
