Red Light, Yellow Light, Green Light..........Go!!
Yep, only one more day until I start my quest to get my first 100-miler under my belt. The Zumbro 100 will be a great test of my training and Paleo diet. In fact, tomorrow I will have been on the Paleo diet for 7 full weeks. Can't say I've regretted it one bit. I'm off of work today, so I'll have a lot of time to get my food and gear together, as well as relax. Tomorrow should be a great time as I'll get to see and run with some great folks like Mitch Rossman, Steve Quick, and Zach Pierce (although I have a feeling Mr. Quick will be starting off at a much quicker pace than me). My awesome bro will be my pacer and I can't wait to spend some quality time with him on the trails. Hopefully my race plan is going well and I'll still be feeling good and in good spirits. My running and orienteering buddy, Molly will pacing Zach, so I'm looking forward to seeing her out there as well. The weather looks perfect, with dry and sunny conditions forecasted. Daytime temps should be around 50 F and nighttime a cool 30 F. What more can you ask for!
