I was going to get in a final short run tonight, but then I started thinking about all the things I still have to do and how close the race is. So I packed my back pack with the food and supplies I will be carrying with me, and marked my map. I still need to label the Mileage so I don't end up running 20 miles on a trail I am only supposed to be on for 2 miles, I am in way over my head on this one...

My flight leaves at 6AM on Friday morning, less then 59 hours until race start! Wish me luck.

I don't know when I will be able to get the race report up. I am going to be in Washington all next week. I will probably take my laptop but I don't know if I will have Internet access.

Have fun out there Josh! Take the laptop. I bet they have Starbucks in Washington State with internet access.

Run like you mean it Josh.

Get the report out when you can.

Tell Joe that echoguy said hello.

Happy trails.

Can't wait to hear now it goes!

If anyone can do that race I would say it would be you. Be careful, you are heading towards making yourself a legend...

Good luck I will be thinking of you.

Thanks! I'll come back with a full race report, good or bad, It will be fun.


I am going to take the laptop, I do believe Starbucks was founded in Seattle so my odds are pretty good.


I am going to give it everything I got. I'll tell you all about it when I get back. I will try to hook up with Joerunner if I can.


I studied the map for a while yesterday and think I have a good handle on it. I will try to memorize the written directions on the plan today.


Thanks for the confidence, brother! A legend...I like the sound of that. Maybe not for a few years though, lol.
