So I’m beginning to think the only way to train for these 30 miles is to do lunges, squats, and the Stairmaster for 6 hours. 

We finished one loop in about 1:50 and I was DONE. The only upside to this race is that I doubt my ankles will survive all 3 loops of running on traprock and I may not even have to finish. Just the idea of spending 6 hours playing “Where’s Waldo?” with the traprock underneath all the leaves so I don’t trip and fall and smash my face in sounds EXHAUSTING. 

I’m not worried, YOU’RE worried.

No, I’m … actually really worried.
