Today’s the big day – the day I find out what it feels like to run 50K (about 31 miles). We flew to Sacramento on Thursday night, so that I had time to acclimate to the time zone change before this morning’s race. So as of 8:30AM PST, I will be running the 34th Annual Jed Smith Ultra Classic.
I’ve had a few people ask about my time goals for the race and the answer is simple – I have none! My goal is to run a nice steady pace, slower than my marathon pace, and finish the race happy. I also want to have enough energy left to shower and head down to wine country for a little afternoon wine tasting.
That’s it – no time goals at all. Really. Not even any secret ones I’m just keeping to myself. I promise!
In the meantime, check out any posts that you may have missed over the past week:

What are your plans for the Super Bowl tomorrow? I’m going to be just getting back to Atlanta, so I don’t expect to be doing much. =)
