Back to injury: Another opportunity for an anatomy course - From the microscopic cells to the big bones and muscles, or even the intangible troubles of our minds, I'm always in awe with what doctors have to learn. ...

GREETINGS FROM FLORIDA - GETTING READY FOR THE KEYS ULTRAMARATHON
I arrived late last night (after flight delays). Weather is actually pretty nice here in Miami. Temps were in the mid 80's and humidity around 70%. Felt very comfortable.
I have been fighting a very mild cold, some congestion and a slight sore throat. I think it will be OK and won't impair my run (like it was when I caught the flu before last year's Quicksilver 50 miler).
I will head down to the Keys mid-day tomorrow to meet my crew and attend the pre-race briefing. I'll be careful driving:
I'm really excited about this race. I think the course will be good training for Badwater, with some heat challenges, certainly some humidity, and a lot of pavement/asphalt.
Unlike Badwater, this race won't push me with climbs that I will need to get 1/2 way up Mt. Whitney. But for the bridges, the course will be pretty darn flat.
I have set up a post all ready to go, which I hope I will update during the race, giving times, reports and maybe photos "live" during the event. So check back here over the weekend!
