Green Lakes 50K (Before – Part II)

This is going to be my last post before the Green Lakes 50K. I will be back on Saturday (or Sunday) with results and the winner of the shoe giveaway! Since my last post, the weather forecast has gone to sh… it’s gone downhill. It’s now looking like rain and 90% humidity. Oh well, you have to play the hand you’re dealt! Obviously, everything shown below is to scale.

  1. Have a great race.
    This weekend I’m dropping my youngest off at college Friday, Going to WP boot camp Saturday and doing a 12.5 mile long run Sunday. Somewhere in there I need to find time to edit photos for my new web site. I’ll probably need a good stiff drink or two Friday night!
    Cheers – Andy

    That video is funny but I feel him! I did the xterra 20k last weekend at green lakes! This weekend I am supposed to do the loop around the lake 15k, turning stone 5k and turning stone half Sunday. I wanted to do green lakes but I want to wait till next year for an ultra. Also, my knee is still bothering me so I take it day to day now!!!

  3. You’re ready!. Have a great race.

    Good luck! The weather may change in your favour, forecasts aren’t always right. I wear an old school Timex too. It’s the only gadget I wear when I race, if it even qualifies as a gadget.

    I am FAR from an ultra runner, but that video had me dying. I love it. SENDING positive vibes your way, good luck and have fun!

    Niiice! Good luck, homeslice. I have a friend who was raving about ucan on a recent run. Need to look into it.

    I am kind of tapering for next Sunday… I have the “Monster Trail Marathon” in Cortland NY so I am excited about that. I was wondering what you thought about the UCAN. Do you drink while you are racing? I have tried it and did not like the taste. Maybe I should try another flavor? 🙂

    GOOD LUCK with your race! Can’t wait to hear about!
