T - Minus 9 Hours 17 minutes

So, I'm just about to go to bed before the race tomorrow morning. I feel 4:30 is going to come far too quickly. Funny thing happened today. I got on the ferry feeling fine, and then got up near the end to go to the bathroom and noticed my right leg was getting stiff, annoying. But then as I got up to leave and descend back to the car my leg was much stiffer. By the time I got to the race site it was bothering me quite a bit. I got out of my sandals and into a good runner. On my bike for a quick 20k spin to loosen up was no help, and by the end of the day my leg hurt even when I walked. I have iced it now and will pop some pills prior to the race but I just hope I wake up and this is all gone.

That being said, if anyone is watching the race feed live. This will explain a slow run. With the two races in the following weeks if I am feeling any pain, I am just going to completely ease up.


Anyways, off to bed! The course looks beautiful though!

Thanks man. Nice one for you too. Looks like you finished right on your goal pace. Wickedness man.
I would like to race Osoyoos, but right now the game plan is to race the Continental Cup in Geneva NY, on July 12th.
