Since I am an ultra runner, I am tapering for my 50K.
This means, I am not running Thursday and Friday, before the event.
I am working too many days lately. I read a post on FB, about how the weather for the Groundhog 50K.
"Oh pshaw, " I thought. "It's too soon to be thinking about the weather, it will change by next weekend.."
Hey there! Ooops, I remembered, wow, the race is actually this Saturday. So the weather forecast-now a high of 70 degrees, and maybe 70% percent chance of rain-has me all giddy. That's what 95% humidity and 90 degrees does to an East Coast runner. I will love it if the temperature drops AND it rains all day. That would suit me fine. (It would suck for the volunteers though :( )
So I am leaving for "The Weather Capital of the World" after work tomorrow. I will miss the spaghetti dinner where Phil makes a special guest appearance. I am pretty stoked about my return trip to the Groundhog 50K course, it's been a few years!
