Thanks to everyone for the wonderful comments on my last post. It helps to know that others have dealt with support/family issues and found ways to make it all balance.
This morning I was out for a short run (3.5 / 27:42). It would be nice to say I got out before the heat but it seems to not cool down anymore. I did enjoy getting out in the morning to start the day.
I didn't like the thought that 6 a.m. seemed early to me, knowing that Saturday will be much much earlier!
Is it odd that my biggest worry for the race on Saturday is the start time?
Not the hills. Not the heat. Not the distance.
Just the super early morning.
