The one month countdown

Yes, it is a mere month away. And with 30,000 runners, at this time on this day next month - I may actually be hitting the starting mats. I'm hoping for a cold front because, once that sun comes up, it gets hot after hours of running, and there isn't much shade on the missions trail.

My legs are still a little dull from 33+ miles this weekend, but nothing is falling off. That's a good sign, I think. No races this weekend - just an easy 15 miler and then catching up on everything I didn't do last weekend when I was running, eating, sleeping, repeating.

Wow, that's a huge marathon. How's the course?

The course is nice - mostly flat, includes downtown, King William District, and mission trail. However, the start is the downtown part, so it'll be 3-4 miles of jumbling elbows.

Catalina marathon sounds awesome. My sister just did the Lake Tahoe HM and said it was beautiful, but TOUGH.
