The rain is never going to stop. This is ridiculous. It's pouring right now. Yesterday, we had rain storms, hail storms, thunder and lightning and it just transitioned to straight rain overnight.
The VT100 course is going to be as muddy as I've ever seen it, I'm afraid, and the race is still 10 days away. I'm not even running the race - just volunteering, crewing and pacing - but I still wonder how bad the mud will be. Agony Hill, at about mile 48 or so, is going to be really nasty. The last couple miles should be pretty bad too. Well, to be honest, I can think of a lot of places that are going to be tough. And, the rain seems to be creating a super-strain of mosquitoes that are relentless.
Nonetheless, I'm still looking forward to race weekend.
Tonight, after work, I'm picking up my new car. I'm hoping to sneak in a run in between when I'm done working and when my wife arrives to sign the car loan paperwork. As long as there's no thunder or lightning or hail, I imagine I can survive running in the rain for a few miles.
