The 24 Hours of Sunlight is this weekend. For some crazy reason (which I have not figured out yet), I decided to solo it. I crewed for Mike last year, which means I should really know better than to go out and do it myself. But, what the heck. So, I've been training like a banshee trying to get strong and ready. The race consists of skiing in circles and that's pretty much it. You put your skins on, ski up the mountain, take your skins off, ski back down, and repeat as many times as you can in 24 hours. Sound like fun? I didn't think so! I've got all this anticipatory energy in my system and am forcing myself to relax for the next few days before the race. I just had to get out this weekend, though (it was 50 degrees and sunny!), and did a 16 mile run on Saturday and skinned 3 laps at Sunlight Sunday morning before work. All you positive thinkers, send 'em my way this weekend, please!
