I'll be wearing my Vibram Speeds for my 3 legs, with my cut-down New Balance MT100s as a fall back (primarily in case of cold weather).
It's a 200-mile relay race. I've been wanting to run this race for 5 years, since my good friends (and better runners) started doing it.
1st year: laser eye surgery (discretionary).
2nd year: diverticulitis surgery.
3rd year (last year): kicked a suitcase and bruised my ankle bone. Was on the team and had to drop.
4th year (this year): BETTER NOT HAVE ANYTHING HAPPEN! ;)
All I need to to is finish with an 8-handle on my time, and I've met expectations, so anything better than that is gravy. :) God willing.
