ALMOST ROCKY RACCOON TIME
Well, I am in Texas (agan) for work (again) and it is one day before Rocky Raccoon 100. I was hoping to make this my true sub-24 hour race, but have adjusted my goals to just try and finish and get a belt buckle. I had some good racing and training through December, but (like everyone) holidays put that on hold for the last couple weeks and first week 07 and 08. I started to pick it up again, did some nice San Bruno mountain running and then, now two weeks ago, came down with a head cold. I actually wasn't too worried as I figured 3 days later I'd be running again. But nope - only 2 runs since that time, one 6 miler & one 4 miler. I am still congested in the head & chest, and fighting a lingering sinus infection. So......excuses have been laid out. I will shoot for the sub 30 hours (the cut-off) and get the buckle. I am now entered into the Keys 100 that travels from Key Largo to Key West - I will try and make that my sub-24 hour goal race. In the meantime, I'll be running the RR 100 with running nose and feet :)
