Big Sur International Marathon-Ready or Not...

This time tomorrow I will hopefully be done with Big Sur. Hopefully? Yes, hopefully. Since Tuesday I have been fighting a serious cold. My head is about to explode and my throat is on FIRE. I have invested in every kind of cold remedy possible and have yet to feel reprieve. But I am determined to finish tomorrow. I did not come ALL the way across the country to DNF or DNS for that matter.

I've got my Race Pile laid out and ready for our 2:30 AM wake up call. Who get's up at 2:30 AM? That is not even morning, that's middle of the night. We have to make it to the shuttle by 3:30, take the hour journey to Big Sur, then start the race at 6:45.

My Pile....

I'm ready, at least as ready as I'm gonna be. I'm excited and looking forward to the scenic route. I've got my spibelt and camera charged! And of course we already started our pre-race fueling! Now this is the lunch of Marathon Champions!

  7. I'm sorry to hear about your cold, but I admire your determination to finish the race. You can actually make your own homemade remedy. A ginger tea is an effective cold relief. By the way, I love the socks as well.
