The Dipsea Race just sounds like so much fun! After reading the course description, that statement really pegs me as insane.
But I want to do it anyway.
Too bad it isn't simply a matter of signing up... *sigh* Rigid participant-limit makes it kind of hard to actually get in. Well... I'm going to try. I'm thinking that training for the Bay to Breakers will really help... both are a bit over 7 miles and have hills that kill. And the Dipsea is harder and a month later... extra training time... if I get in. Think good thoughts for me!
Anyone out there reading this mess ever done it? What was it like?
Tomorrow I will be attempting 8 miles ... with hills. I haven't been near a hill in my running shoes in seriously 9 years. NINE years.... YEARS. I may turn it into 7 (which would mean turning around right before the really big hill... the top of which is the 4-mile turn around) and not feel too much like a wimp because even 7 would be farther than I have run in those same NINE years!
Whose rooting for me?
Who can I root for? Who's doing a long run tomorrow? Who's doing something else challenging?
Who will be lying around, sleeping in?
Who will be crashed out on the sofa all day eating yummy things made for them by someone else?
In other words, can I be envious of your Sunday? lol
