Here is the plan:
Try to keep the pace at 10:15/10:20 for as long as possible. The train will jump the tracks at one point and we (my friend, Shannon and I) are hoping it will be around mile 22/23. Once the decent into hell begins (others call it the wall) we will have some buffer to get us to our goal of 4:30.
Weather forecast is for temps to be in the 50's (yay!), but 70% rain (boo!). I don't mind the rain as long as it isn't a torrential downpour! I don't like it when my shorts start to feel like I am wearing a diaper. No fun. And lets us not even begin to discuss the possible chafing! Plus, 26 miles in the rain really does suck.
This is what I will look like afterwards!
And. I can't believe I am going to confess this. My friend and I will be wearing matching outfits. JUST matching tops. Why? Hell, I don't know. Shannon found two cute purple tops for under $20 bucks.
Don't be a hater.
Off to get my shit together.
