I stayed away from news today, but did come across 2 things -
1. A good (not overly emotional) read can be found here.
2. This tweet from here.
Diablo - the forecast is heating up. I'm watching it like a hawk hoping it dives before Saturday, right now most sites are saying high of 80-82. Nearly the exact same forecast as last year, but last year it ended up being around 90. I'm not against dropping to the 13.1 and going after a 50k at the 12 hour....but there would be a tinge of disappointment, if I'm being honest. However, the bottom line is I can run. 1 mile, 5, 10, 13.1, or 31....this week has been good for perspective, and I know runners around the world are just grateful for the ability to run, and whatever distances they are running this week....they are doing it with all their heart. Whatever I end up doing this weekend, it'll be with everything I've got. 13.1 or 31, I'll leave it all out there and be grateful to cross the finish line.
