This coming Saturday...
I'm better trained than I was for the last few; my long runs in September were 23, 34, 24, and 25 miles, spaced six days apart. My pace is, well, slow, but my endurance isn't too bad. That past two years we've run the east side of Hungry Horse reservoir (the non-traditional course). This year we're back on the traditional west side, the more scenic one.
I'm particularly interested in how I feel over the last fifteen miles and the finish. This will be a good indicator of my condition for the Beast of Burden 100 in January. At 50 miles I need to be, as a friend with substantial experience at 100 miles put it, "fresh." We'll see how close I am to that.
