Since the other one got so long, I figured I would start a new thread about Umstead.<br><br>
So my prep for the 50 is going nicely, I am looking forward to seeing everyone there.

my training is going well. I finally feel recovered from my 100 miler a couple weeks ago! yeah! I am going to run a 50K next weekend for some good quality miles. I did 5 hours today on pretty hilly terrain. I am pooped! It was good and hard.<br><br>
My mileage never gets as high as 75, but i do a lot of cross training, so maybe the effort equals out?
Professor-- where do you live? If anything, you will be the only prepared if we have another hot and steamy race day like last year!
the heat training will help. last year a lot of people pooped out from the weather.
You say that now! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""><img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""><img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""><br><br><br><img alt="wink.gif" src="">
I have always thought the HAT run was too close to BRR or Umstead, whichever i was running that year. That is great that your friends got off the waitlist!
I did a two week taper for RR100 and assume it will be similar.<br>
Ethel is undecided now about the weekend, but i may get my DH to come up! I think you met him briefly in VT.

Hey all!<br><br>
I was wondering if we can get a list of all the peeps coming, runners and pacers and crew and who is up for pacing, so we can start planning that? The loop is 12.5 miles.
Phred-- i did 25 hours at Rocky Raccoon a few weeks ago. 24 is a slim shot for me, but i am gonna try my best. See how the day unfolds. RR is easier, but i found the roots slowed me down a lot on the more technical sections. I would love to finish before the sun comes up and i missed that by about 25 minutes at RR <img alt="sad.gif" src="">
you're super crew member!!!!!!!!! You are queen of the ice bandanas! You got mad crewin' skillz.
<img alt="banana.gif" src=""> do it. do it. do it.
Phred-- would she want to work an aid station or pace you?
I am tapering, but i do not have my schedule yet from my coach for the next couple weeks. Historically, three weeks out from a 100 miler, have done long runs of about 4 hours and mid week runs not much over an hour and a couple days of cross training. Closer to the event, I will have an extra rest day and more reduction of time running and x-training. Week of the race is usually very light. I also get a massage that week.
the newer Brooks seem to run a bit smaller and i went up a full size! oy. I wear contacts and run with a mini visine in my pocket. I have an emergency pair of contacts in a drop bag. I hate running with glasses and if it is humid out, then it is even worse.
my biggest concern is getting my contacts in race morning! lol. Is that a cat in your picture?
ha! he looks related to my precious baby <img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""><br><br><br><img alt="" src="" style="border:0px solid;">
