Okie Trail Runner

Because running the red dirt beats pounding the pavement…

Twas the night before McMurtry and all through the house…

OK, so the big 50K trail race is tomorrow. I DNF’d my first 50K attempt last June in a most craptastic fashion. I’m better trained, lighter and tomorrow’s weather won’t be like the triple digits of the hilly Ozark course I faced last time. But I’m still nervous. You just never know. I could go out too fast (again) and do the zombie death march for the last 10 miles. I hope not. I’m nervous, but I’m confident too. Sure, I could have trained more and trained harder. But I’m ready. To quote Stuart Smalley: “I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and doggone it, people like me!”

If I do well, I will be doing my happy dance. If I fail, I will be disgusted. Clint will be disgusted and he will give me the stink-eye!

  1. Failure is NOT an option! You have no reason to worry Don, I promise you are going to do great! And I can’t wait to congratulate you after the race and swap war stories. :)
