<p>The 50K has been sold out for a long time.</p>
<p>You might try and send a note to Tom Jennings and see, but with only a week or so to go it may be a little late.</p>

<p>if my lungs don't clear up from this killer sinus cold I may NOT beat your runner to the 25k turnaround even though I have an hours headstart!  *yikes*</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>at this point I'm still planning on starting  ... seriously hoping to finish ... but with no real milage since early August I don't know that I'm going to be able to do anything more than just try to make it the entire 62 miles and get that milestone under my belt, so to speak  <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//smile.gif"></p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I sure hope I get to see you ... is your runner doing the 100k or 100 mile?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'll be staying overnight in Titusville on the 16th and hope to see some of the 100 milers come thru before and/or after I get some rest  ... maybe I can see you after the race?  The trainride is kind of fun, just sayin'    <img alt="wink.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//wink.gif"></p>

<p>won't you all be in for packet pick-up on Friday night?    not that we'd have a LOT of time to visit but at least get introductions in?</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I hope to hang around on Sunday after I awaken from my post-race coma but that will depend on how hubby's mom is doing  ... she had a masectomy today but it went well and we think it'll be fine for us to be away over the weekend at this point ..</p>

<p>We'll be at the  Comfort Inn in Titusville this year ... last year we stayed all the way down in Franklin since I waited too long to set hotel reservations, haha</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>my hubby will be crewing me at Petroleum Center and the first loop back at the school and then pacing me from Petroleum Center back to the finish on my last loop  <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//smile.gif"></p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>you'll probably be able to pick him out in the crowd fairly easily as he's tall (6'6") dark (hair is dark and he's tan) and very handsome (my opinion, but I am right <img alt="wink.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//wink.gif">    )</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I sure hope I get a chance to meet you all!    see ya this weekend!</p>
