It seemed like a good idea at the time

This is the elevation profile for the Boggs Mt. 50k.  That I'm doing next weekend.  That I am wildly undertrained for.  That's 4,400 feet of gain.  I think I looked at it once before, like 3 months ago (when I, of course, figured I would be totally ready for it).  I thought, Oh, no prob, I can handle that.


Now I'm just wondering, what the hell was I thinking?  I think the only "flat" thing about it is when I fall FLAT on my face, as will surely occur.  OMG, my ass is going to be so thoroughly kicked.  Plus, I'm running with someone, I've got friends coming specifically to cheer me on, I've got a 20 mile Napa bike ride the next day, my longest run was yesterday at 20 miles (more about that in the next post) and I'm a lazy, lazy girl.  I'm going to absolutely flail out there.  

Ya know what?  I CANNOT wait!  I'm gonna have a blast!

Fall flat on your face? Shit yourself? Cry? Sounds like a good time to me. Can't wait to hear abou it.

Just going out there and running without any drama would not make for an interesting blog post.
Hope you have tons of fun, not too much suffering and lots of sense of humor.
Enjoy.

Flailing is what gets you attention in triage. Be prepared for sore quads from the downhills!

I have no doubt that you will rock this beast. You got the love for the run and that will get you there.

Rock it!
