Final thoughts prior to Umstead

About 12 hours from now, I will be 4 hours into the run. Hopefully, I should be comfortably into the second lap.

Good news, the cold has totally gone, even better news, the weather is predicted to be perfect tomorrow.

This evening, we went to the race briefing and pasta dinner. Two things stand out - the incredible organization undertaken by Blake Norwood and the people who put the race together, and the fantastic shirt that I will proudly wear when I have finished.

There is a photographer there, who is doing a master's degree in photography, and for his thesis, he is taking photos of runners' faces whne they have finished, his whole project is taking pictures of fatigued faces. An interesting concept to say the least. Needless to say I signed up, mainly because it was free, and I'm curious to learn what I will look like after 50 miles!

There is an 80 year old man, and a 74 year old woman who are running the whole 100 miles. That's quite incredible when you think about it.

Anyway, I know I will struggle to sleep, but I suppose I should try.
