Time to saddle up!

Well, since the disappointment that came with Dizzy Daze 'performance,' I had fallen off the proverbial running horse. Yes, some valuable training time was lost BUT, mentally, I'm back, and that's pretty important since Sunday is the Mt. Si 50 Mile.

I probably should be a little more concerned than I am about the time lost but I'm anticipating an alright run on Sunday with plans of beating my time from last year (9:22:53), not necessarily because I'm in better shape, but more so because I know what to expect and have gotten (a little) better at pacing myself.

Like I said though, most importantly, I'm excited to run, something I haven't completely felt since Dizzy Daze, and now, just 2 days out, I'm down right itching to go. So yeah, "saddle up!," "get along little doggies!," and "rawhide!" and all that other good stuff...

See you 50 miles from now!

Good luck to you too. I was looking forward to going for sub 7:30 this year, I guess I'll have to wait for 2010.
