Well friends, it just got real. After spending this week in my bike saddle trying to heal some pretty gnarly toe blisters, I wake this morning to the reminder email that my race is now officially 8 days away. (NBD!)
No need for coffee this morning as the adrenaline just reading the email set off was enough to roust me from a pretty stubborn Friday morning fog. If the toes are ok, I’ll attempt about 8 miles on Sunday and then the major tapering takes effect as the days march closer to the start date. I think I’m prepared, but I also know I shouldn’t be that naive. Any one out there done one before? What’s going to happen that I will never expect?
