Well, it’s less than two weeks until River of No Return 108K. Besides being 27 miles farther than I’ve ever run and more gain than I’ve ever seen and at elevations I’ve never been to, it’ll be just like any other race. Adding to this, my training the past two weeks has not been anywhere close to where I would’ve liked it to be. My ankle has continued to be wonky, and my sleep has been really off – two not so very good things for training. I should be doing things that would actually help me right now (like planning what I’m going to eat/drink, looking at course map, figuring out aid stations), but instead, Gifs.
