All of a sudden this morning I realized I'm running a race tomorrow! I'm feeling very excited about it. 21K will be fairly easy for me, but a decent run. Plus, it's a new adventure! After my last few runs and feeling so stellar I'm thinking tomorrow should be cake. I realize it's possible to have an off day tomorrow, but I'm just going to think positive.
Yesterday's Corner Canyon run started with a 600'+ climb followed by a second 400' climb. Not too difficult in the world of ultrarunning, but I'm extremely happy with my finishing time of 1 hour and 39 minutes for an 8.7 mile trail run.
The Xterra 21K that I'm running tomorrow barely has any elevation gain. I'm hoping I can really hammer down and run this quick. It's a half marathon distance, so longer than yesterday's run, but not as difficult. I have no idea what the trail condition is like as I've never been to Jordanelle, but I can't imagine a trail next to a lake would be extremely rugged. I guess I'll find out in the morning! Packet pick up is tomorrow morning before the race. Squeee!
