The Journey to a Barefoot 50-mile Endurance Run: Week 18 of 18

Well, the race is tomorrow!  I've been a bundle of nerves and energy all day (ok, probably for a few days).  I'm ready to get this thing DONE!

Yesterday, I zipped out of work to head up to Fleet Feet in Fair Oaks to get my packet and hoped to get one of the 50 free AR50 technical running hats.  Unfortunately, this was the sight when I arrived at the store.

Yeah, so, no hat.  Bummer!  But I got my number and I'm ready as I'm gonna be to race.  I'm getting my gear organized, crew food situated, and hopefully will get to bed at a decent hour.  Gonna be up around 3 am to try and get some breakfast in and head up to my crew chief's house and then to the starting line around 5 a.m..  Race starts at 6 a.m.!

HUGE THANKS to Rob, a.k.a Running Romeo, for crewing for me tomorrow!!!  Thanks to all my family, friends, and running buddies for your words of encouragement.  See ya in Auburn!!!

For anyone interested in tracking the race. They have live postings on  And as you can see from the pic above I'm #598.
