Goin' To Carolina

This morning - Last 6 miles today before pacing at Umstead 100 on Saturday......back to ridiculously cold at 19 degrees for the run.....and nothing but rain coming our way. The weather looks interesting for Raleigh, NC this weekend, with Saturday looking to be 72 degrees, mostly cloudy with a shower or thunderstorm around. Saturday night into Sunday morning (when I will be pacing) is currently looking like a low of 47 with periods of rain.

Best of luck to all running Umstead this weekend (and, of course, to everyone else running an event this weekend), especially the Umstead crew - Meredith, Frank, Emmy, Kim, Tom T., Doug V., Keith S., Lisa Bliss, and anyone else I may have missed.

Today in 1860 - the Pony Express began delivering mail, with riders leaving St. Joseph, Missouri and Sacramento, California. Today is National Alcohol Screening Day, Tweed Day, and supposedly Don't Go To Work Unless It's Fun Day, which seems to have no origin, but I like the idea anyway.

  7. Hey Emmy. Glad you made it to NC. The weather here is crappy, rainy. Eddie is picking me up from the airport at around 10:15 AM. I'm hoping I have no flight issues. I'll have some rain gear ! See you soon.

  9. Good luck, Anthony! I see from the counter your own big race is less than a week away now. Don't overdo the pacing.
