JFK 50 Mile Pre Race

So we head tomorrow down to Hagerstown, MA for the JFK50 this Saturday. It has been a roller coaster of a fall with but I think I am ready. I had some good speed / strength work through the summer and capped it off with a couple of 42+km runs and a couple of races to get me in the mood. Body is feeling good, no major pains, so basically what I am saying is there are no excuses. My goal is a simple sub-8:00 and I should have a good feel for where that will fall after the first 15.5miles coming off the Appalachian trail. If I fail anywhere it will because I am trying to push the pace and not focusing on nutrition. I am pretty nervous and excited for this, it ranks up there with the Boston Marathon in the history and prestige, it is a honour just to be able to participate. Hopefully Kim will be tweeting updates (if she figure's out that iPhone thingy).
