I am really nervous about the High Desert Trail Run tomorrow. It is supposed to be super hot, and the race doesn’t start until 10am. Yikes. I threw my filled water bottles that go in my
fanny hydration pack into the freezer so they will be nice and cold tomorrow. I haven’t ever done a trail run, and it looks like it is going to be pretty tough. That’s how I get better I guess. Hopefully it will make the flat, fast, shaded course for the Fit for Life half, in 2 weeks, a little easier.
In order to calm my nerves before a race day, I have come up with a little pre-race ritual. It usually includes painting my nails (focuses my energy), browsing the current arrests on adasheriff.org (makes me feel better about myself), and then laying out my gear (gets myself organized):
Wish me luck!! Race report soon!
