I am full of butterflies...anticipating tomorrow's race. There are many questions bouncing around in my head. Did I train enough? Were my long runs um, long enough? Will my old joints hold up to 10-12 hours of constant forward motion? Will I be able to push through the many walls that I will surely face?

Another problem that we will face is the brutal southern heat. A high of 101 with 49% humidity is expected tomorrow. Luckily, we will be in the woods! Not much improvement, but hopefully bearable!

I think I have all my supplies ready. Twelve packs of Clip2, one bottle of S! Caps, a gallon of chocolate milk, three gallons of h20, plenty of Gu!, Clif Blocks/Bars, a liter of Coke, four Red Bulls, and three full change of clothes. Luckily, the course is an eight mile loop and I can stop at my car each time to refill my Camelbak and eat my personal stash. Also, two aid stations (every 4 miles) with other goodies should keep my fuel tank full. I am probably taking too much, but that is better than not enough. I only live four miles from the course, so I can always call my wife to bring anything I may have forgotten.

Wish me luck!
