I ran most of the 10 mile course Saturday morning and it was fantastic. The woods were very fresh from the rains the previous day. Because the area is very sandy, there are very few muddy spots, so my feet stayed dry until the later miles when I had to run through some longer grass. With the morning sunlight streaming through the forest canopy it would spotlight different sections of the woods. It was very surreal. The air was cool and fresh, spiced with the sweet smells of honeysuckle.
Six days to go until the race and everything seems to be falling into place. The forecast is for upper seventies and partly cloudy, perfect.
Active Rewards and Snickers will be shipping out a bunch of Snickers Marathon bars for the race, its one of my favorite energy bars.
