This Might Suck
10:11 a.m.- It's currently pissing down rain here, and doing the same in the State College area and it forecasted to piss down until this evening or later.. NOT looking forward to a damp evening/night of camping. Totally not regretting sucking up an early drive and getting a hotel in State College. Frig! Oh well, I'm trying to stay positive on the weekend's race. I mean they are calling for sunny skies tomorrow. Sure the trails will be slick, but hoping that the rain will just make the forest roads hook up a bit better. I could be wrong. The worst part of this race is that just about all of the single track is in the 2nd part of the race. Once you're tired and beaten down. And don't even get me started on the last section of single track a few miles from the finish. Yikes! By that point I'm usually stumbling around like a buffoon.
Taking my Lake shoes with me, haven't used them all year, but they have such a good rubber sole, that I'm thinking of using them. Stumbling around on wet rocks is going to be hard enough without slipping on the Sidi's plastic sole.
Oh well what's an endurance race without some ENDURing? ;)
Time to finish up some packing stuff and get ready to roll around 1:00.
