Tuesday 3 miles

 Super slow and easy jogging. I'm feeling the 5k from Saturday still with some residual fatigue. Legs feel OK, just low energy.
 Here are a few suggestions given to me for Mt Evans...
Are you sure no solid food for a race of less than two hours is a good idea? Maybe just a sandwich in a fanny pack?
Plus, I don't remember seeing any Coke at the aid stations so you might want to carry a 2 liter bottle of your own... just in case.
Don't forget, this is a mountain, wear your trail shoes.
Remember to smile and thank every volunteer, preferably with a handshake or a pat on the back.

Don't forget your pacer at Summit Lake.

If the wind is as brutal as expected on race day (~50mph) then a pacer/ wind blocker would be good!

I have not looked at the forecast yet. Hope not, I love this race. See ya there. I will be looking for you to introduce myself.

Are you going to wear your camelbak? What about your compression socks?

You should also consider getting a temporary tattoo with a pace calculator on it. You know, just to be sure.

Trailrat- I'll be the guy dressed in white camo compression gear...

P- No socks but definitely a fuel belt, i-pod, aero-helmet, Garmin, altimeter, HR monitor, i-phone and a folding stool for resting at the aid stations.

You forgot the PBR.

White compression outfit? I thought you were going to try out their new clear version?

And I definitely would not touch your stool during this race. See previous comment on not needing any solid food for a 2 hour race. (These last 2 sentences don't relate to each other if you are easily offended.)

Lucho said...

Ya, the PBR will be in the fuel belt.

Clear compression gear? Ha! You're right, maybe I had better not bring my own stool with the white clothes...

My PM isn't compatible with my Lunar Racers...
