Sunday, I drove to the Owyhees for one last solid workout before the race in 12 days. I wanted to push the pace a bit in spots to see how fast the course would be on race day, but hold plenty back for the race. I managed 2:53 for the first 20.7 miles. I made a few wrong turns, losing some time and distance. I also stopped for a minute to shoot some wild mustang pics around 4 miles into the run. It was a great experience and I am really psyched to race.
|"I watched you suffer a dull aching pain|
Now you decided to show me the same
No sweeping exits or off stage lines
Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind
Wild horses, couldn't drag me away
Wild wild horses couldn't drag me away"
