Wish me luck.

If you don’t hear from me again for a while, it’s because I didn’t survive the next two days. Please send Flavor-blasted Extra Cheddar Goldfish crackers, and hopefully some Wild Berry Skittles, too. Those might help revive me.

This afternoon, me and 11 of my friends will start running at the top of Mt. Hood, and we won’t stop until we reach the beach. That’s about 197 mi, for those unfamiliar with Oregon geography (which I’m assuming is most of you, because how many Oregonians are out there, really?). Why are we doing this to ourselves, you might ask? It’s call the Hood to Coast relay. There will be 12,000 runners out there, plus some high school runners and walkers who start in Portland and proceed from there to the beach. It’s seriously a good time, but last year when I ran, I had done a better job of preparing. This year? Not so much. I have a foot thing that’s bugging me, so I have been limiting runs to every other day, and well, some of the every others stretched out to be every third day kind of situations, so yeah. I’m going to be sore on Sunday. That’s an understatement!

Anyway, I hope y’all have lovely weekends. I’ve got to go pack some running gear and make rice krispie treats now!
