Good Sleeps

Not much to say today.

I've been getting in some good sleeps.  This is important, to go into your race well rested.

My work schedule has worked in my favor-I had a four day weekend, and I only work two days this week, and all on second shift, so consequently, more sleeping in.

Actually, sleeping in around here means to 7 am.  Today we made it until 730 am.  Once daylight hits, the puppy is UP.

My drop bags are packed, my sleeping bag rolled up, my duffel bag with race clothes and post race clothes packed.

I've looked at the MMT map again.  This time, I was looking at intersections of different trails on the course.

During both The Ring and RR, I would come across a trail intersection, and wonder how far I had until the next intersection.  So I have fixed some of these intersection numbers on my little aid station note.

For example, when I am on the East Ridge, on the MMT, and pass the Milford Trail Sign, I will know it's 1.4 miles to the Indian Grave intersection.

Just another way, to cut up the race, in smaller slices, than just running Aid Station to Aid Station.

Just like that old joke: "How do you eat an elephant?  One bite at a time."


  1. I love the joke!!!! I am going to use your strategy in my race this weekend. Enjoy and I can't wait to hear how everything goes!

  2. Excellent strategy - the sleep, and the distances to next intersection. You are dialed in and ready to ROCK, Kimba!

    See you at Veach Gap!!
