I have been writing a lot, but nothing seems relevant lately. My heel still hurts a little and I haven’t been running, but as I have mentioned in the past, this is a big problem because running is my catalyst. So, if I can’t run, I’ll do the next best thing . . . go watch people run.
Yep, fellow Fab Fiver, Jim is joining me for a weekend in Chattanooga to watch some people we know (and many more we don’t) run the Lookout Mountain 50 Miler. For those of you that don’t understand, that means they will be running 50 miles tomorrow. Ha! I know you know, but I think sometimes it’s funny to revisit just how crazy endurance athletes get sometimes.
To make it more interesting, the weather seems like it will be a muddy pile of crap. I don’t know about you, but I’m not so sorry I didn’t sign up for this one. Fifty miles in the mountains while it’s cold and rainy? Probably not.
But, obviously I think it’s pretty damn awesome or I wouldn’t be standing in the cold rain watching them. AND, I have never been to Chattanooga before and hear it is just amazing. I’ll make sure to get some pictures for everyone who’s signed up for Ironman Chattanooga. I’ll also make sure to throw in a few course breakdowns to get you jacked.
Until Chatt . . .
