2 days until the 50 mile run

Tomorrow we leave for Manistee, MI for our first 50 miler. Perhaps it is best not to think about how long that really is. Perhaps it is best not to read training plans for a 50 miler two days before the race and realize you haven't done enough really long runs.

But, of course, it will be fun. Is there a better way to see Manistee National Forest? Probably not for two crazy runners like us.

Sealegs Mom and Sealegs Dad will be joining us. We'll be staying in a cabin near the forest. I'm so happy to spend time with them, all the while knowing we're leaving for Denmark in just two months.

And The Lorax gets to see us race again, though I'm sure his mind will be elsewhere.

I downloaded 14 songs today for the race, so I'm sure I'll have a good running song recommendation for you when we return.
