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. :)
