Go Death Racers!!!!

Only 6 days until the Canadian Death Race!! I'm really looking forward to it, but that is because I was smart and went in on a relay so I'm not facing the mammoth task of running 125kms. Since I'm leg 5, the only pressure on me is to finish. I already proved that I can walk 21kms so I'll be fine. Really, it's the 4 days in Grande Cache and having a good time with our friends that I'm looking forward to.

This week I put new insoles in my shoes and finally had some good runs!!
Wednesday: ran 5km (felt really good and finally managed 10 and 1s)
Friday: NIGHT RUN - no idea how far we went. We ran for about an hour. It was a chance to try out the headlamps. It was interesting.
Sunday: 10km (felt really good today, avg pace 8:03/km)I have switched from sports drink to water and my stomach has been much better. I'll need to figure out what to do for longer distances though.

Here is the river I get to ride across on the boat. It sure looks scenic during the day - shame all I'll see is pitch black.

    nice thought but I have a soloist to support and a 7 year old to look after! I'll also need to help my brother who is also soloing.
