The Virgil Crest 50-Miler is less than 48 hours away! I have just a couple of short runs left and my preparation will be complete.
On race morning, I will be getting up around 3:00am and I’ll be leaving for the race around 4:00am. It will take me about an hour to get there. The race starts at 6:00am.
My gear includes:
Back in June, at the Cayuga Trails 50, I think I went out a little too fast (especially considering it was my first 50-miler). I plan on being more conservative on Saturday. This will be my first time racing with a headlamp, and I’d prefer not to fall as many times as I did at Cayuga Trails. There are several people racing who are about the same speed as me, and I think it should make for a good time. I’m bib # 245.
I don’t think there is much else – um, here goes nothing!! I will be back on Sunday with results and a recap.
Have a great weekend!!
