16 Days and counting

Have you looked at your calendar?  I'm trying not to. 
It's MayRace month.
What are they happy about?
I'm in denial that in 16 more days I will be giving up sleep, comfort, civilized bathroom facilities and sanity for the privilege of running 103.7 miles. 
sorry mom
I've done what will most likely be my last serious training run on the course.  The weather is being stalked.  Drop bags are being complied.  Aid station cut off times are being memorized.  Planning gear to cover potentially 36 hours of running.  Read years of MMT race reports.  Multiple new shoes being broke in.  Maps ordered.  New headlamp purchased. 

Contents on stomach so far being held in.


  1. I have to say, I am so excited for you. And I am talking the smiling from ear to ear!

    And to think, I was feeling bad for saying Holy Batman today!

    Good luck!

  2. It's going to be so awesome! =)

  3. We are at 16 days now? Wow, where did spring go?

    Gonna do do my last 16 miler tomorrow. This is where having a coach is great, I don't make the schedule, he does!

    It's going to be fun, to be back on the Massanutten rocks, you are going to have a good run Shelly~!

  4. I can't wait to read all about it!
