ILLNESS IS NOT A PUNISHMENT, BUT A STIMULANT TO LIFE.
Illness can be a teacher, companion, or a punishment. Still, sometimes its message isn't clear. Ignore the illness. Look for stimulation in the knowledge that you can heal in a instant.
The Ohlone 100 miler is fast approaching. One more day to sleep in. I plan to start Saturday at 4:30am. I want to get to Del Valle and start that climb out by 1pm.
I was out running today on Mission Peak and it was like a oven dry heat but windy. I know it will be hot on run day so I am freezing all my drinks. I have to drop off my cooler in Sunol tomorrow so I want to freeze everything this way it will be nice and cold. I will buy ice tomorrow to stash out there too.
I fell ready to go, I hope to finish under 34 hours.
Me getting one last hot run in.
Who was it that said cows are not smart?? They are !!!!they always seem to find shade on Mission peak and rest in it.

I thought I would pass this to you even though I'm sure you've heard about it already???


Joe,
What would be your estimated date for entering the Sierra?

Kick butt out there this weekend, Catra! I hope to see you somewhere on the trail as I run the 50K. That would be a sign of good luck!!!

And by the way, cows scare the crap out of me. I don't know why. They just do. I'm afraid of being trampled.
