Friday was a 6 mile run with some pick-ups (little sections where I speed up which makes it a more interesting and gets a little speed work in).
Today it is completely pouring out but it’s my rest day anyways so it’s fine with me! I’m hoping it clears up for tomorrow. I need to get my last long run in before the half marathon next weekend.
I have to say I have a bit of bittersweet feelings about the course layout, and the fact that you park at the end and then shuttle to the start which basically means you have to be there and ready even earlier than usual. The race starts at 6:30 am and I have to be in downtown SF, park in a garage and on a shuttle by 5:45 am at the very latest (that’s the last shuttle). So all that means I am basically getting up at 3 am! It’s going to be a tough one, but then of course, that’s partly why we all love races right?
Plus after all that I’ll of course be this naive and happy and ready to sign up for another race like I always am after races:
Adrian brought this home as a surprise the other night. Sometimes he is so very wise!
Have you ever had to shuttle to the start of a race and get there so early?? Maybe I just don’t know that it’s somewhat normal!
