We leave tonight for Howl at the Moon! It's a 3 1/2 hour drive, and I remember Rob, Running Further, telling me you're not supposed to drive further than the race distance, so I think I have that right this time!!
I'm having the usual dreams of forgetting my water bottle, getting lost in the woods and not having my running shoes with me. Now I know I'm really excited!!
I don't know what to expect and that's part of the fun. I have never tried anything like this so I'm just going to enjoy the experience and see what the day holds for me.
Coach Lisa instructed me to do a run/walk at 3/2 minutes with a ten-minute walk and to rest for 5 minutes each hour. Then, when I really have to, just walk. So those are my orders and I'll stick with it.
Haight has his lounge chair all ready -- and the cooler will be filled with his favorite beer. Why do I feel he may have the better deal here????? What a lucky man he is!
Interesting info: the website states that they got the name Howl at the Moon in honor of the RD's brother who passed away and was a lover of wolves. I just love that. So no, I won't be howling at the moon anytime soon - but I will honor the memories of loved ones lost.
And away I go................
