A First: My First 24 Hour (Pre-Race Nervousness Post)

I really wanted to visit my sister, and was pondering weekends. My friend Ray mentioned a 24 hour race. The infamous Hinson Lake 24 Hour. I've never done one. Hmmm. Hmmmmm. Hmmmmmm.

My sister said that weekend was good to visit. I got into the race. I bought plane tickets.

What the hell am I thinking?

My mantra when I run ultras is, "The faster you run, the sooner you're done."

I know this will be a big challenge for me....flat....a good opportunity to PR....

I'm nervous just thinking about it.

I'm hoping for a good day...I'm hoping to push myself...I'm hoping to stay in touch w myself.

(Yes, I've run eight 100 mile races but never a 24 hour!)
